Two day I-5 closure planned

Two day I-5 closure planned

Clark County plans a 54-hour closure of Interstate 5 in early June.

The closure will take place from 11 p.m. June 7 to 5 a.m. June 10.

Drivers who regularly take the "Salmon Creek" stretch of I-5 between I-205 and State Route 500 – there are 88,000 every day -- know some pain is inevitable.

"It's not 'carmageddon,' but closing I-5 could certainly gridlock most of Clark County if drivers don't plan ahead," said Leon Winger, the lead WSDOT engineer. "Avoid driving if at all possible, and if you have to drive, plan for extra traveling time."
