Weeknight lane closures on northbound and southbound I-5 in the SeaTac/Des Moines area continue through Friday, Sept. 1, 2023, as construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation build new bridges as part of the SR 509 Completion Project.

The overnight lane closures are necessary for the construction of bridge decks for the new South 216th Street bridge and northbound flyover ramp to the SR 509 expressway.

During bridge deck construction, crews will close up to four lanes of I-5 in each direction nightly through the morning of Friday, Sept. 1. At least one lane of northbound and southbound I-5 will remain open to traffic.
