What to expect

People who use I-5 should expect significant disruptions and backups when construction begins in mid 2024. Expert traffic engineers are studying different lane closure options to balance the need to keep traffic moving while also allowing crews to work safely and efficiently. We will provide updated information when it is available.

We will rehabilitate both directions of I-5 between Yesler Way and the Northgate vicinity with new concrete, pavement and expansion joints.
