Southbound I-5 alternate routes
Drivers should plan to use alternate routes during the five weekends in July and August when southbound I-5 is reduced to two lanes in SeaTac, Des Moines and Tukwila. Drivers should also allow at least an extra hour of travel time from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the weekend lane reductions. Up-to-date information will be available on WSDOT’s mobile app and traffic map.
