A press release from Washington State Department of Transportation.
TACOMA – During the week of Oct. 11, travelers who use East Bay Street under Interstate 5 in Tacoma and 20th Street Drive East in Fife will need to plan for additional travel time to help prevent delays.
Monday, Oct. 11 through Friday, Oct. 15 each day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- One lane of East Bay Street will close from East 27th Street to East 28th Street in Tacoma.
Monday, Oct. 11 and Tuesday, Oct. 12 each day from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Travelers will see one-way alternating traffic on 20th Street Drive East in Fife, under the new I-5 bridge.
The daytime single lane closures on East Bay Street create a work zone while crews install bridge security fencing. The lane closure on 20th Street Drive East in Fife creates a work zone for demolition work on the old Puyallup River Bridge structures. Both are part of the project that builds a new southbound I-5 Puyallup River Bridge.
Update on paving at I-5/South 56th Street ramps
Paving of the off- and on-ramps at the I-5 and South 56th Street interchange has been rescheduled until spring 2022. Rescheduling the work will allow for more favorable weather conditions.
