Project Info

I-5 - Vicinity Tumwater Blvd to Gravelly Lake Dr - Paving - Completed August 2015

Crews replaced a 1980’s era bridge expansion joint from both directions of Interstate 5 and the on- and off-ramps for US 101 in Olympia. In addition, workers resurfaced segments of I-5 between Tumwater and Lakewood.

How you benefit

Improves safety
Repaving the highway surface helps reduce potholes and wheel ruts making for a smoother, safer ride for drivers.
Expansion joints create a smoother surface for drivers by allowing concrete in a bridge to expand and contract with changing weather.


The total budgeted amount for this project was approximately: $5,043,000
