DUPONT – Travelers who use the Mounts Road on-ramp to southbound Interstate 5 will need to plan for extra travel time Oct. 15 and Oct. 17.
Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close two lanes of southbound I-5 from Mounts Road to the Thurston County line and the Mounts Road on-ramp to southbound I-5 on the following nights:
- Thursday, Oct. 15 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 16.
- Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 p.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 18.
During the overnight and early morning ramp closure of the Mounts Road on-ramp to southbound I-5, travelers can reach southbound I-5 by following a signed detour using northbound I-5 to exit 119/Steilacoom-DuPont Road and back to southbound I-5.
The lane and ramp closures are needed to make repairs to concrete panels. Some work is weather sensitive and may be rescheduled.
