Driving through Tacoma this weekend? The state Department of Transportation issued this release regarding closures on Interstate 5 as construction work is done on new bridges for the Nalley Valley Project.

Motorists heading through Tacoma this weekend, Nov. 12 – 14, should plan ahead for closures on I-5 and several off-ramps near the interchange. The closures are necessary while crews construct new bridges for the I-5/SR 16 Westbound Nalley Valley Project.

Traffic impacts this weekend, Friday through Sunday, Nov. 12 -14, include:

· All lanes of northbound I-5 close at SR 16 Friday and Saturday from 11:59 p.m. to 7 a.m. Traffic detours via the City Center interchange, Exit 133.

· The ramp from northbound I-5 to westbound SR 16 closes Saturday from 1:30 to 3:30 a.m.

· The on-ramp from 38th Street to westbound SR 16 closes Saturday from 1:30 to 3:30 a.m.

· The ramp from southbound I-5 to 38th Street closes Friday from 11:59 p.m. to 8 a.m.; and Saturday from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m.

  1. You’re paying to sit in line for highway construction. Just think of the
    ‘total’ price of owning a car. You’re paying big time folks.
