Wet roads not slowing drivers; construction moves ahead

Posted by Cory Tolbert Haik

Weather not slowing drivers

Wet weather may be slowing down construction work a bit on northbound Interstate 5 heading into Seattle, but it's not delaying commuters much this morning.

Spokane Street on-ramp reopens for daytime traffic tomorrow morning

Washington DOT says that crews continued to make progress replacing expansion joints over the weekend, but with the start of a new work just hours away, they worry complacent drivers will take to the road.

With only two lanes open to traffic for the duration of the project, they are encouraging drivers to use alternate routes, ride the bus or train, carpool, vanpool, work from home, postpone or alter trips and shift their schedules.
