Nisqually River Bridge - Interstate 5

Nisqually River Bridge - Interstate 5

Near the Nisqually River Bridge, Washington State Department of Transportation crews will replace a bridge approach slab, resulting in lane reductions for two consecutive weekends on northbound Interstate 5.

The work will take place from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday, June 14-17, and June 21-24.

While two lanes will be open, they will be narrower than usual, so the speed limit will be reduced to 35 miles per hour.

Since WSDOT expects traffic to be backed up throughout the weekend, and especially on the respective Sunday afternoons, it suggests that people allow extra time for travel, use public transportation, carpool or travel before 9 a.m. and after 9 p.m.

Previously scheduled work was canceled due to rain. All work will be weather permitting.
