ROCHESTER – Contractor crews working on a Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) project will close and repave lanes in both directions of Interstate 5 near Rochester tonight, Friday, Sept. 9.
The lane closures are necessary so crews can grind out and replace approximately2,550 feet of pavement in the I-5 Grand Mound to Maytown Stage 1 project that are not meeting WSDOT standards. This repaving will be done at no cost to taxpayers. The $61.5 million project added a lane in each direction of this seven-mile stretch of I-5 to provide congestion relief for the 60,000 drivers who travel it daily.
Beginning at 10 p.m., motorists can expect double-left lane closures in both directions of I-5 from Scatter Creek Bridge (milepost 90) to Maytown (milepost 93). Crews estimate they will reopen lanes to traffic by 5:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 10. Drivers can expect traffic delays during work hours.
