Nightly paving closures start Sunday on I-5 ramps



Nighttime paving will close ramps on Interstate 5 near Woodland starting Sunday.

Contractors will alternate ramp closures at exits 21 and 22 through Thursday to minimize driver impact.

WSDOT says to expect closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the following schedule:

• Sunday, Tuesday: The northbound offramp from Dike Road (Exit 22) and southbound onramp to I-5.

• Monday, Wednesday: The southbound offramp from Dike Road (Exit 22) and northbound onramp to I-5.

• Thursday: The southbound offramp from state Highway 503 (Exit 21) and northbound on-ramp to I-5.

The construction is part of a repaving project on I-5 between the East Fork Lewis River Bridge to Todd Road.
