Final major changes for I-5 project in Tacoma coming up

By Cara Mitchell, WSDOT:

Buckle up and get ready for final changes to Interstate 5 in Tacoma. We are working to complete the last of 14 HOV construction projects and as the I-5 Portland Avenue to Port of Tacoma Road – Southbound HOV project wraps up, we have several major changes coming up that drivers will want to plan for. 

Northbound I-5 moves to final configuration

Our contractor is getting ready to put northbound I-5 into its final configuration from the SR 16 merge all the way to Fife. What does that mean? For drivers, it means there will soon be four general purpose lanes on northbound I-5, instead of three, all the way from SR 16 to Fife. It also means two new auxiliary lanes will open from the SR 16 on-ramp to the SR 167 exit, and from the I-705 on-ramp to the Portland Avenue exit.

Those who drive this section of northbound I-5 through Tacoma know firsthand that this area is notorious for backups. We are finally – FINALLY! – ready to bring some relief to drivers.
