Tonight’s Eastbound SR 16 closure rescheduled

Tonight’s scheduled closure of eastbound SR 16 has been postponed and will instead occur from 11 p.m. Thursday, April 4, to 4 a.m. Friday, April 5. During the closure, motorists can also expect the Union Avenue on-ramp to eastbound SR 16 to close. Eastbound SR 16 motorists will be detoured onto Union Avenue.


These closures are necessary for work on the I-5/SR 16 Eastbound Nalley Valley project, which replaces the original eastbound SR 16 structure that spanned Nalley Valley and completes the SR 16/Sprague Avenue interchange. The first portion of the interchange overhaul, the westbound Nalley Valley viaduct, opened June 2011.


Drivers can check travel conditions by downloading the WSDOT mobile app, visiting the Tacoma traffic page, or by dialing 5-1-1.
