DUPONT – Weather permitting, travelers who use the Mounts Road overpass at the southbound Interstate 5 off-ramp will soon see changes to the intersection.
As early as the morning of Monday, July 13
- Crews will unveil two new stop signs at the Mounts Road and southbound I-5 interchange.
- Travelers who use Nisqually Road Southwest will now stop before making a left turn to southbound I-5.
- Travelers who use Mounts Road near the Eagles Pride Golf Course will stop before crossing the I-5 overpass or turning right to southbound I-5.
WSDOT traffic engineers anticipate the change will help keep travelers moving at a more even pace through the intersection, thus reducing wait times and backups that affect southbound I-5 travelers during peak commute hours.
