Lane closures planned on bridge

One westbound and one eastbound lane of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge will be closed next week for roadwork if weather permits.

The westbound lane will be closed from the Jackson Street interchange to the bridge between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday and Tuesday. The eastbound lane across the bridge will be closed between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 5 a.m. Wednesday.

At least one lane in both directions will be open during construction.

Crews will restripe, pave and relocate the eastbound lanes into the median area as a part of the project’s permanent lanes.

The closures will be postponed if it rains.
