The Washington State Department of Transportation reports that nighttime travelers who use Interstate 5 near Vader and State Route 507 near Centralia, should add extra time to their trips next week.
Beginning Monday, August 26, Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close sections of highway during work to repair structural damage to overpasses from oversized loads hitting the structures.
