Please note: the closure of the Forest Street off-ramp previously announced for this weekend has been canceled and will be rescheduled.
The southbound I-5 off-ramp to Forest Street will be closed from 7 a.m. Saturday, February 22, to 7 p.m. Sunday, February 24. During the closure, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) crews will grind down and pave S Forest Street from the off-ramp to Sixth Avenue S. During the closure, a detour will be in place which has been coordinated with the Washington State Department of Transportation. Motorists will be sent to the next exit, S Spokane Street, then west on Spokane to the First Avenue S off- ramp where they can head north on First. There will be no on-street parking in the area 300 feet to the north and to the south of the Forest Street off- ramp from Friday night until the work has been completed Sunday evening. All sidewalks and crosswalks on Forest to Sixth Avenue S will remain open during the days. The work, which is part of SDOT’s Arterial Major Maintenance program, is weather dependent.
