Work on a stormwater management project will close one southbound traffic lane and the right shoulder on Interstate 5 Monday night through Tuesday morning. The I-5 southbound shoulder and lane closure will start about one mile north of exit 295, the Capitol Highway exit.
The closure will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, October 20. The southbound lane and shoulder will re-open by 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 21.
The work is part of a project to collect and treat stormwater runoff from the freeway to protect Tryon Creek water quality. Environmental Services is working with the Oregon Department of Transportation on the stormwater management project.
