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

Project overview

Beginning in summer 2021, contractor crews rehabilitated a nearly two mile stretch of southbound Interstate 5, just south of Woodland, WA in Clark county. Sections of the interstate were showing signs of wear and tear. There were cracks, ruts and potholes in many places along the highway. The pavement rehab project was done to improve the structural integrity of the roadway.

This $7.6 million project extended the life of the roadway, providing a smoother surface and safer ride for drivers.

What to expect

To minimize traffic backups and delays, construction work took place on weeknights between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Travelers encountered single and double lane closures and occasional rolling slowdowns. For increased safety, the speed limit within the work zone was temporarily reduced to 55 mph until construction was completed. 

To minimize delays and enhance work zone safety, crews installed a temporary Smart Work Zone System. Using sensor technology, the system gave travelers real-time traffic information by analyzing roadway conditions as they approached the work zone. This helped increase safety and allowed people to make safer, more efficient driving choices as they traveled along the highway.
