I-5 repair to reduce freeway to one lane



North Fork Lewis River Bridge repairs will reduce northbound Interstate 5 to a single lane tonight, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Crews will fix a through-the-deck pothole and repair the bridge surface.

Two lanes are expected to be closed from 8 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, according to WSDOT. Drivers should allow extra time for delays, the agency said.

The bridge carries I-5 over the North Fork Lewis River at the Clark-Cowlitz county line near Woodland.
