Below is a notice from our neighbors in Tacoma about an exit ramp closure that could impact driving for Fife residents.
The following is a message from Pierce County Alert:
On Saturday, April
20, crews will close the southbound I-5 exit to South 38th Street in Tacoma
(Exit #132A). The ramp will remain closed for three months through July. During
the closure, crews will demolish the existing ramp and build approaches for a new
A signed detour will direct motorists further south to the I-5 exit to South
56th Street (Exit #130), back onto northbound I-5, and to the northbound I-5
exit to South 38th Street. The signed detour is designed to guide drivers who
know no other routes. If you are familiar with the area, you may want to use
alternate routes, avoid traveling on southbound I-5 during afternoon weekday
commute hours (3-6 p.m.) if possible, and planning extra time for your trips.
With the exception of a few hours for restriping, the southbound I-5 exit to
westbound SR 16 (Exit #132B) will remain open during this construction phase.
