WSDOT will add a second northbound I-5 on-ramp on the east side of the freeway at the Bakerview Road interchange to increase access from the eastside of the area. The existing ramp on the west side will remain for those heading northbound approaching from the west. The addition of this ramp will reduce westbound trips across the West Bakerview Road bridge. Changes to the current configuration will also provide more room for eastbound travelers.
What to expect
Sundays through Thursdays a single lane of northbound I-5 may be closed from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.. There will be one 24-hour single lane closure in each direction on Bakerview Road during the project. The existing Bakerview on-ramp to northbound I-5 and at least one lane in each direction of Bakerview Road will remain open during construction.
Drivers will be able to use the new northbound I-5 on-ramp on the east side of the freeway at the Bakerview Road interchange once complete.
