Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close the Center Drive and Mounts Road weigh station on-ramp to northbound Interstate 5 from 10 p.m. Monday, July 8, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 9. The Mounts Road weigh station will also close. The closure will allow crews to perform asphalt repairs on northbound I-5.

During the work, crews will also close the two right lanes of northbound I-5. Drivers who use the Center Drive on-ramp to northbound I-5 will be detoured to southbound I-5 to Mounts Road and back to northbound I-5.

Users of the Mounts Road weigh station should take note that once the on-ramp is closed at 10 p.m. Monday night, any vehicles parked overnight in the vicinity of the Mounts Road weigh station will not be able to use the on-ramp until it reopens at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning.
