This project widened northbound I-5 from Portland Avenue to the Port of Tacoma Road to provide room for one HOV lane. As part of this project, WSDOT rebuilt the northbound I-5 Puyallup River bridge and the ramp to northbound SR 167, improved the Portland Avenue interchange, and repaved a portion of lanes of northbound I-5 within the project limits.
What to expect
This project is complete. Travelers will see construction delays while crews build the new southbound I-5 Puyallup River Bridge. Travel lanes on northbound I-5 across the new bridge are in a temporary configuration during the southbound I-5 Puyallup River Bridge project.
A new northbound Interstate 5 bridge across the Puyallup River opened to travelers in 2018.
