Overnight construction resumes on I-5 through JBLM after July Fourth holiday

LAKEWOOD – During the overnight hours of Wednesday, July 1, construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation shifted all travel lanes of southbound Interstate 5 into a temporary configuration at the Berkeley Street interchange. This traffic shift gives crews access to a work zone where the elevation of southbound I-5 will be raised nearly 14-feet at Berkeley Street.

After the holiday weekend, travelers will see continued overnight lane and ramp closures on both directions of I-5 while paving activities occur near 41st Division Drive. No work is scheduled over the Fourth of July holiday.

Drivers are advised to plan extra travel time into their trips and give work crews a brake by paying attention while traveling through work zones. All work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled.

During the ramp closures, signed detours will be in place. The closures are part of a project that widens I-5 and rebuilds the Berkeley Street and Thorne Lane interchanges.
