More nighttime closures are planned this week on Interstate 5 and state Route 18 in Federal Way.

Washington State Department of Transportation crews are still installing steel girders for a pair of new flyover bridges as part of a $112 million project. The ramps – one between westbound SR 18 and the other between eastbound SR 18 and northbound I-5 – are scheduled to open this fall.

Here are this week’s closures:

— The two right southbound lanes on I-5 will close at 10 p.m. tonight and reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

— The northbound I-5 on-ramp from westbound SR 18 will be shut down from 9 p.m. Tuesday until 5 a.m. Wednesday.

— All northbound I-5 lanes at SR 18 will close nightly from Friday to Sunday. The lanes will reopen by 7 a.m. each morning. Traffic will be detoured onto eastbound SR 18 to Weyerhaeuser Way, then westbound SR 18 back to I-5.
