I-5 - Plum St to S Tacoma Way - Paving

Project news

Crews will repave sections of I-5 between Olympia and Tacoma. The project will also repair three bridges in Thurston and Pierce Counties. Two bridges carry vehicles on I-5 in Olympia and Nisqually. The third bridge is Vickery Avenue over SR 512 in Parkland. 

Needs & benefits

Asphalt cracks and ruts can create potholes that may require occasional emergency repairs and untimely lane closures. Crews will also replace I-5 expansion joints and bridge approach slabs that extend the useful life of the highway. After years of wear, the Vickery Avenue Bridge will receive a new surface.
