No, you’re not dreaming – more like having ‘Deja vu’ – as crews get ready to close the on- and off- ramps for I-5 at Mercer Street again this weekend.The ramps will shut down starting Friday, July 13 at 11:00p.m., and remain closed until 5:00a.m. on Monday, July 16.SDOT says the work is dependent on the availability of materials and as a result could be canceled. During the closure, businesses are expected to remain open and accessible with the use of other routes.
While the ramps are closed, SDOT also plans to close the I-5 on-ramp at University Street to help ease the traffic flow around the Mercer Street exit lane.
Detours will be clearly marked during each closure.
SDOT warns drivers to expect delays, especially on Denny Way, in both directions, as more drivers are expected to use this roadway as an alternate route.
