Portland Avenue/East 28th Street intersection off-limits this weekend

The East 28th Street/Portland Avenue intersection in Tacoma will be closed to traffic from 11 p.m. Friday (July 29) to 4 a.m. Monday, the state Department of Transportation said.

The northbound Interstate 5 exit to Portland Avenue will be closed during that time as well.

The closures are necessary so contractors can regrade and pave the intersection, the Transportation Department said.

Crews working to expand and rebuild I-5 near the Tacoma Dome will be re-routing some lanes next week. Detours will be in place.
