  More lane closures, slowdowns on I-5 near Mellen St. tonight, Dec. 17


I-5, Mellen Street to Blakeslee Junction (MTB) project
Construction update: Dec. 17, 2013
I-5 lane closures again tonight while girders caught in traffic are set
You may have heard about yesterday’s terrible collision on I-5 near DuPont. One life was lost, and emergency response closed the southbound lanes for about 11 hours.
Southbound traffic backups reached 13 miles, and two of the five bridge girders for the Mellen Street couplet were caught in the middle of it. Needless to say, those girders didn’t arrive at the construction site on time to be set last night, so we’ll have more lane closures and slowdowns on I-5 in Centralia tonight to finish the job.
It will be the same as Monday night: left lane closures and slowdowns for travelers on both directions of I-5 near Mellen Street. Crews will again work from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Thanks for your patience
