WSDOT maintenance crews will continue catch basin installation work alongside the highway on northbound I-5, in Vancouver
VANCOUVER – Travelers on northbound Interstate 5 in Vancouver should plan ahead for possible delays next week.
On Monday (June 5), Washington State Department of Transportation’s maintenance crews will continue catch basin installation work alongside the highway on northbound I-5, in Vancouver.
During heavy seasonal rainstorms, water has the potential to collect and flow over the roadway. With the newly installed drainage system, excessive rainwater will flow into the catch basins, preventing pooling on the interstate, improving safety for travelers.
Additional lane closures may be needed, WSDOT will announce the dates of the closures once they are confirmed.
- Monday June 5 to Thursday, June 8: The left lane of northbound I-5 between Northeast 33rd Street and Northeast 78th Street, will be closed daily from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Drivers are encouraged to slow down and pay attention when traveling through work zones.
This work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled at any time.
