I-5 and I-10 Connectors in L.A. to Close for ‘Swarm’ Operation

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to close the Westbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) connector to Southbound I-5, and the Southbound I-5 connector to Eastbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) from 4 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1, near downtown Los Angeles.

The eight-hour closure will enable Caltrans to conduct a “swarm” maintenance operation involving a wide variety of maintenance tasks. Multiple Caltrans crews assisted by dozens of community service workers will carry out the diverse maintenance duties simultaneously.

For safety, Caltrans will close the following connectors and ramps during the swarm operation:

Connectors:

  • Southbound I-5 connector to Eastbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway)
  • Westbound I-10 (San Bernardino Freeway) connector to Southbound I-5

Ramps:

  • Westbound I-10 State Street off ramp
  • Mission Road on ramp to Southbound I-5
  • Mission Road on ramp to Eastbound I-10
  • Cesar E. Chavez Avenue on ramp to Southbound I-5

Mainline freeway lanes will remain open during the swarm operation.

Caltrans anticipates 100 or more workers will repair pot holes, sweep the roadway, remove litter and graffiti, replace signs, trim trees, clear weeds, repair guardrail and irrigation, re-stripe the
roadway, re-lamp overhead lights, install new ramp meters, inspect and clean drains and culverts, and complete other maintenance needs.

Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” and “Slow for the Cone Zone.”

I-5 Construction for 2017 in Tukwila Wrapping Up

The start of fall typically means highway construction projects begin wrapping up for the winter. That includes I-5 construction work south of Seattle, with just two remaining weekend-long lane closures on northbound Interstate 5 in Tukwila.

The interstate will be reduced to two lanes north of the I-5/I-405/State Route 518 interchange from Friday, September 29, to Monday, October 2, and Friday, October 13, to Monday, October16. Drivers need to plan for lane closures starting at 8:00 p.m. each Friday, with all lanes reopened by 5:00 a.m. each Monday. The work is weather dependent.

During the weekend of September 29 to October 2, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will replace expansion joints in the left lanes of northbound I-5 at the Duwamish River. People driving should plan ahead for the following:

The northbound I-5 HOV bypass lane will be closed. The on-ramp from eastbound SR 518 to northbound I-5 will remain open, but drivers will need to merge right almost immediately. Both lanes exiting to SR 599 will remain open, providing an alternative route into Seattle.

Expect Long Delays for I-5 Construction in Olympia Area

The Washington State Department of Transportation reports that crews will pave northbound I-5 between Maytown and Lacey, and southbound I-5 between Tumwater and Maytown. Crews will also rebuild the northbound I-5 Pacific Avenue bridge approach slabs and repair expansion joints.

This work will occur between mileposts 95.6 to 99.1 and 102.5 to 109.2

Drivers who use northbound I-5 near Pacific Avenue in Olympia can expect long delays. Drivers can also expect back ups on the southbound US 101 on-ramp to northbound I-5.

In order to complete the work, northbound lanes will reduce around the clock from: 10 p.m. Friday, July 28 through 5 a.m. Monday, July 31

Olympia area drivers who use northbound I-5 during overnight hours may want to plan extra time. Drivers may encounter night lane closures.

Driver tips
Travelers who use northbound I-5 in Olympia are encouraged to consider the following:

  • Choose an alternative travel mode such as car or vanpooling, public transportation, walking or cycling.
  • Drivers heading to Olympia or Lacey may want to consider exiting early and using surface streets to reach their destinations.
  • Allow plenty of extra time and expect additional congestion.
  • Use northbound I-5 early in the morning or late at night.
  • Delay or reschedule discretionary trips.

Expect Delays. Five Straight Weekends of I-5 Lane Restrictions in SeaTac

The Washington State Department of Transportation reports five straight weekends of northbound I-5 lane reductions in SeaTac have begun.

I-5 travelers should expect backups and delays on northbound Interstate 5 through SeaTac and Kent each of the next five weekends.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation have reduced northbound I-5 to two lanes during the first of five consecutive weekends. During the lane closures, crews will repave northbound I-5 between State Route 516 and the Southcenter area. Similar work during the weekend of June 3-4 resulted in backups of up to 6 miles.

“Drivers need to use alternatives, or be prepared for long delays,” said WSDOT Traffic Engineer Mike Swires. “We’ve already seen up to hour-long delays during the weekend in this area for this project. Travelers should use transit, take alternate routes, or delay or postpone their trips on northbound I-5 in the Kent-SeaTac area.”

Crews will also close the SR 516 on-ramps to northbound I-5 and the South 200th Street on- and off-ramps throughout the weekend. Drivers need to watch for construction vehicles entering and exiting the work zone in the left lanes.

All work is weather-dependent. If the weather holds, WSDOT expects to finish the work during the July 14–17 lane reductions.

Closures and Detours for I-5 Construction in Portland

The Oregon Department of Transportation reports that the second of four full weekend closures of Interstate 5 in one direction between the Marquam Bridge and North Broadway will take place in the southbound direction from midnight Friday night, April 21 until as late as 4:30 a.m. Monday, April 24. The Morrison Bridge will be closed for the same period. Travelers should make plans now to avoid delays on detour routes.

During the I-5 southbound closure, travelers will be diverted to I-405 southbound to reach I-5 south of downtown. A lane of I-5 south will be open for travelers to access I-84 east. Travelers heading in from Washington State could consider using Interstate 205 to avoid congestion in the central city. Travelers should consider using other routes, including surface streets, or taking transit, depending on their travel plans.

The onramp to I-84 east from the Moda Center will be open for fans departing the Blazer playoff game on Saturday, April 22.

The remaining weekend closures of Interstate 5 will take place from 10 p.m. Friday to 4:30 a.m. Monday on the following weekends:

  • Friday, May 5 to Monday, May 8 (northbound)
  • Friday, May 12 to Monday, May 15 (northbound)

Closing I-5 will allow contractor Hamilton Construction to perform concrete repairs underneath the Burnside Bridge, which spans lanes of the freeway. Areas of the concrete are degraded and at risk of falling on the freeway. This work is part of Multnomah County’s Burnside Bridge Maintenance project. The closures will also allow ODOT crews to do work on the closed section of freeway, including paving, survey, electrical, inspection and seismic work.

The Morrison Bridge closure is for a separate Multnomah County project that is replacing the deck on the lift span.

Ramp Closures, Detours and Delays for I-5 Construction in Tacoma

The Washington State Department of Transportation reports the following traffic impacts as a result of I-5 construction in the Tacoma area – Portland Avenue to Port of Tacoma Road.

This I-5 construction project builds new HOV lanes on I-5 in Tacoma and Fife, and a new northbound I-5 Puyallup River Bridge.

Extended ramp closure
The month-long closure of the northbound SR 7 ramp to northbound I-5 has been extended into April while crews continue to reconstruct a new ramp that will join a newly widened I-5. The delay is due to excessive rain and wet soil conditions. WSDOT will announce an opening date once the information is available.

I-5 Construction in Oregon Begins in May

In summer 2017, the Oregon Department of Transportation will repair and resurface two ramps at the Interstate 5 Morrison Bridge interchange and the I-5 bridge over the Rose Quarter Transit Center. The project also will replace the median barrier along I-5 from the Rose Quarter to north of the Hawthorne Bridge. The new barrier will be 10 inches taller than the existing barrier to improve safety of the highway.

When I-5 construction begins in May 2017, there will construction and nighttime noise. Noise will come from heavy equipment, construction trucks, beeping noise when construction vehicles are in reverse (a requirement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and equipment such as concrete saws and dri​lls.

Working at night is necessary to keep daytime traffic flowing on the heavily traveled freeway.

Lane and ramp closures for I-5 construction will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on weekdays and from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. on weekends. There will be no daytime lane or ramp closures.

Impacts to I-5 & connections to I-84

No full closures of I-5 will take place. This project will require nighttime lane closures on I-5 during bridge and median barrier work.

Ramp closures & detour information

Work on ramps at the Morrison Interchange and work on I-5 will require nighttime ramp closures. Only one ramp will be closed at a time.The impacted ramps and detour information will be provided on this project page soon.
