Drainage work planned for northbound I-5 between East 33rd, N.E. 78th streets

By , Columbian staff writer

The left lane of northbound Interstate 5 between East 33rd and Northeast 78th streets will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday, June 5 through Thursday, June 8.

During the closure, Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will continue catch basin installation work alongside the highway.

During heavy seasonal rainstorms, water has the potential to collect and flow over the roadway. With the newly installed drainage system, excessive rainwater will flow into the catch basins, preventing pooling on the interstate, improving safety for travelers.

This work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled at any time.
