I-5 - SB East Fork Lewis River to North Fork Lewis River - Concrete Pavement Rehab

Project overview

Beginning in summer 2021, contractor crews will rehabilitate a nearly two mile stretch of southbound Interstate 5, just south of Woodland, WA in Clark county. Sections of the interstate are showing signs of wear and tear. There are cracks, ruts and potholes in many places along the highway. The work needs to be done to improve the structural integrity of the roadway.

This $7.6 million project will extend the life of the roadway and provide a smoother surface and safer ride for drivers.

What to expect

To minimize traffic backups and delays, most of the construction work will occur weeknights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., with single and double lane closures and occasional rolling slowdowns. For increased safety, the speed limit within the work zone will be temporarily reduced to 55 mph until construction is complete. During work to remove sections of failing pavement and rebuild the roadway, crews will reduce southbound I-5 to two lanes of travel, around-the-clock, for 21 consecutive days. This single lane closure, currently scheduled to begin on Aug. 15, and may cause significant delays, especially during peak travel times.

To minimize delays and enhance work zone safety, crews will install a temporary Smart Work Zone System. Using sensor technology, the system gives travelers real-time traffic information by analyzing roadway conditions. This helps increase safety and allows people to make safer, more efficient driving choices as they approach a work zone.
