A little late but here’s the 10:30 a.m. report from DOT.
The shift is turning the evening commute. In the next several hours, crews will be liberally applying de-icer and sand to urban roads and then replowing and using graders to put the moisture off the road.
Once the roads are bare, crews say tonight’s temperatures do not come with the moisture. That means black ice should not be a problem unless there are areas that stay shaded or wet.
At this hour:
Southbound I-5 near Grand Mound is now open. It opened at 8:45 a.m.
Southbound I-5 from Maytown to Chehalis is slow from earlier collisions and closures.
The Tacoma Narrows bridge deck is looking much better.
