Construction on Washington I-5 HOV Lanes Mean Lane Closures

The Washington State Department of Transportation reports that two projects, I-5 – M Street to Portland Avenue – HOV & I-5 – Portland Avenue to Port of Tacoma Road – Northbound HOV, will result in lane closures this week.

These two projects lay the foundation for new HOV lanes on I-5 in Tacoma and northbound into Fife.  These projects are located on Interstate 5 near the Tacoma Dome between M St. to Portland Ave. from milepost 132.8 to 135.2, and northbound I-5 between East Portland Avenue and Port of Tacoma Road.

Lane closures
Drivers can also anticipate night single- and double-lane closures on both northbound and southbound I-5 between L Street and the Port of Tacoma Road throughout the week.
