Drivers using Interstate 5 near Joint Base Lewis-McChord for essential travel during overnight and early morning hours will want to plan ahead for lane and ramp closures next week.

Following Memorial Day weekend, construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will have nightly lane and ramp closures for electrical and earthwork activities along I-5 from 41st Division Drive to Gravelly Lake Drive.

Ramp closures will have signed detours in place.

Travelers are encouraged to watch their speeds and give crews the room they need to work. As a reminder, a temporary speed limit reduction to 50 mph on I-5 from mileposts 121.9 to 124.1 is in place.
