Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will delay the opening of the southbound I-5 express lanes to clean the drainage system underneath the Ship Canal Bridge. This work is important to complete before fall and winter weather hits in order to prevent clogging; which can cause debris and water to overflow onto the express lanes.
Saturday, Oct. 14: The I-5 express lanes will remain closed until 10:30 a.m. The lanes will open southbound after the closure.
Sunday, Oct. 15: The I-5 express lanes will remain closed until 11 a.m. The lanes will open southbound after the closure.
