    I-5 overnight closures coming Aug. 28 and 29. A five-mile stretch of our busiest highway is closing for two consecutive nights this coming weekend – Aug. 28 and 29 – and we want everyone to be as prepared as possible. During the work, crews will close both directions of I-5 so they can safely install supersized bridge girders for a new bridge in Fife. The highway will close overnight on both Friday and Saturday between 54th Avenue East in Fife and SR 18 in Federal Way. Backups could be significant. Our best advice is to avoid I-5 between Seattle and Olympia before, during and after the closure hours, if possible. If that’s not an option, the detour information here will help you navigate your trip. More information: https://wsdotblog.blogspot.com/2020/08/upcoming-i-5-overnight-closures.html
