Ramps from Sprague to I-5 open

Ramps connecting South Sprague Avenue to both directions of Interstate 5 in Tacoma opened Sunday, a milestone in the Nalley Valley construction project.

The ramps opened just after 1 p.m.

The next stage of the Nalley Valley project is to build new High Occupancy Vehicle ramps between Interstate 5 and state Route 16. Design work for that is set to start in 2016.
