Construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation on a project that widens Interstate 5 through the Joint Base Lewis-McChord corridor have overnight lane and ramp closures scheduled this week. The closures create work zones for earthmoving and signal work.

Overnight travelers are encouraged to watch their speeds and give crews the room they need to work. As a reminder, a temporary regulatory speed limit reduction to 50 mph on I-5 from mileposts 121.9 to 124.1 will be in place by the end of the week.
