Why are these closures necessary?

  • On I-5 between Port of Tacoma Road and East L Street, contractor crews are building a new southbound I-5 Puyallup River Bridge, widening I-5 and replacing the East L Street overpass.
  • Contractor crews are finishing new direct connect HOV lanes between SR 16 and I-5 in Tacoma, and a new auxiliary lane on southbound I-5 between South 38th Street and South 56th Street. Crews need dry weather to remove old striping and install permanent striping.
