Temporary configuration for construction, returns to previous layout after summer  

Crews working to expand HOV lanes into Tacoma also are replacing the original surface of I-5. In order for the work to continue on southbound I-5, a traffic switch is in place through summer.  

Reconfigurations 
• Southbound I-5 drivers heading to either South 38th Street or westbound SR 16 will need to merge into the right lanes of southbound I-5 before reaching the construction zone. 
• Drivers heading to southbound I-5 from both I-705 and Pacific Avenue to continue along the South 38th Street collector/distributor. Drivers will connect to southbound I-5 south of SR 16. 

The current configuration is temporary. Once this portion of the work is complete, crews will return to layout that is similar to the previous configuration.
