Starting Monday through May 17, WSDOT maintenance crews will utilize daytime single-lane closures to install a series of catch basins alongside the highway
VANCOUVER – People who travel through Vancouver using Interstate 5 should plan ahead for delays.
Starting Monday, May 1 through Wednesday, May 17, Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will utilize daytime single-lane closures to install a series of catch basins alongside the highway.
During heavy seasonal rainstorms, water can collect and flow over the roadway. With the installation of the new drainage system, excessive rainwater will flow into the catch basins, preventing pooling on the interstate.
- Monday, May 1 through Sunday, May 7: The right lane of southbound I-5 near Northeast 63rd Street, will be closed daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Monday, May 8 and Tuesday, May 9: The left lane of southbound I-5 near Main Street, will be closed daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Wednesday, May 10 through Wednesday, May 17: The left lane of northbound I-5 near Northeast 63rd Street, will be closed daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As with any highway maintenance and construction project, travelers must exercise caution through the work zone. To keep both road users and road workers safe, travelers are asked to have patience, obey advanced warning signs and look for instructions from flagging and road crew personnel.
