It’s a busy Seattle summer weekend but with so much future construction to come, the work must go on! 

The weekend-long lane reductions on southbound I-5 begin at about 7:30pm Friday, August 5, 2022 and include several changes for people traveling on the freeway in the Sodo area:
  • We will work on the right side so drivers who go into the collector/distributor lanes will need to exit to I-90, Dearborn Street, Fourth Avenue South or Airport Way.
  • People using the southbound I-5 on-ramp at James Street will need to use a collector/distributor exit. The South Forest Street and Spring Street ramps will be closed.
  • The I-90 to southbound I-5 ramps will stay open all weekend.
  • All lanes will reopen by 5am Monday, August 8

We will return with more work next weekend. Lane closures will start at about 7:30pm Friday, August 12. All traffic will funnel through the collector/distributor until work wraps up by 5am Monday, August 15.

People who are traveling can get real-time traffic information on mobile phones with the WSDOT traffic app and by following the WSDOT traffic Twitter feed.
