The closures were set to begin Friday at 11 p.m. and remain in effect until 4 a.m. Monday.

Workers will be rebuilding the intersection, installing drainage and electrical systems and paving.

Drivers also might see overnight lane and ramp closures throughout the work zone, which stretches from South M Street to Port of Tacoma Road.
