Nighttime closurs on northbound I-5 in Kent this week

Nighttime closures on northbound Interstate 5 in Kent are planned this week while crews take up to ¾ inch off all lanes on the freeway, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The closures will occur nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday between South 308th and South 260th streets.

Similar closures are planned through April from South Military Road to South 260th Street.

WSDOT said the work will smooth small pavement cracks and wheel ruts to help the 50-year-old freeway last until it can be replaced. There are no funds for the repairs at this point.

Neighbors who want free earplugs can call the WSDOT project hotline at 206-440-4DOT.
