Travelers who use both directions of Interstate 5 near the Pierce-Thurston county line will need to plan ahead for a rolling slowdown during overnight hours of Thursday, July 2.
A private utility contractor with the assistance of law enforcement will perform one continuous 15-minute rolling slowdown between the hours of 11 p.m. Thursday, July 2, and 1 a.m. Friday, July 3. The rolling slowdown allows utility crews to place a communications line across I-5 near the weigh station north of Mounts Road.
I-5 traffic will be held in the northbound direction starting at milepost 109.3 near Martin Way in Lacey. Southbound I-5 traffic will be held starting at milepost 124.9, near Gravelly Lake Drive in Lakewood. Ramp traffic will also be held.
