Yikes! That commute on Interstate 5 is looking ugly.
Traffic is already heavy through Pierce County on I-5. Drivers are stop-and-go on southbound I-5 in Tacoma and through Lakewood, according to the state DOT’s website.
The northbound commute looks heavy from Olympia through Lakewood.
“If you’re going northbound on I-5 from Olympia get ready for brake lights at Nisqually River,” State Patrol trooper Guy Gill posted on Twitter this afternoon.
Traffic also looks slow around the Pierce-King county line.
