Nighttime work on Interstate 205 in Salmon Creek will make travel rough for drivers next week, WSDOT said.

Crews will fully close southbound lanes of I-205 between the Interstate 5 junction and Northeast 134th Street between 11 p.m. Monday and 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Drivers should plan to use alternate routes. Local traffic can follow a detour at Northeast 179th Street to Salmon Creek, WSDOT said in a release.

Crews will be smoothing the road service with a diamond grinder where contractors reinforced concrete panels two weeks ago, the release said.

The work is part of the Salmon Creek Interchange project.
