I-5 NB/SB - North Fork Lewis River Bridge - Bridge Deck Repair & Overlay: From 9PM Friday, Sept. 8, 2023, and continuing around-the-clock, for the next two months, three lanes of travel will be reduced down to two narrow lanes approaching the northbound span of the North Fork Lewis River Bridge, located between mileposts 19.36 and 20.0, just south of Woodland, WA. For everyone's safety, the speed limit has been reduced leading up to and through the work zone. 

Significant delays (up to 7 miles of back up) are expected during peak travel hours.

I-5/I-205 - Concrete Panel Replacement and Joint Rehabilitation: In summer 2022 and 2023, WSDOT's contractor, Granite Construction, will work to replace roughly 100 concrete panels along both directions of I-205 between the Glenn Jackson Bridge near the SR 14 interchange and the I-5/I-205 split and along southbound I-5 between Northeast 179th Street and the I-5/I-205 split.

  • Southbound I-5, between the SR 502 overpass to just north of Northeast 179th Street - 45 mph 
  • Both directions of I-205, between the Glenn Jackson Bridge and the I-5/I-205 split - 45 mph
