What to expect

The next weekend of work on southbound I-5 from I-90 to Spokane Street is scheduled from 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 3, to 5 a.m. Monday, June 6. Crews will replace expansion joints on the right side. The off-ramps to Forest Street, Columbian Way and Spokane Street will be closed. 

No work is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, May 28-30.

During construction, people who drive this section of I-5 should consider:

  • Using  Sound Transit bus or light rail or Metro Transit
  • Carpooling
  • If possible, travel early (before 8 a.m.) or late (after 8 p.m.)

This is one of about 16 weekends with lane reductions between now and fall 2022.

During 2022 southbound I-5 will have weekend-long lane closures and night closures between I-90 and Spokane Street in 2022 so crews can replace 35 expansion joints on the freeway and 10 on- or off-ramps. In 2021 we repaved this 1.25-mile section of the freeway and replaced several expansion joints.
