After two weeks of construction, nouthbound I-5 at D Street in Blaine reopened Tuesday, August 24, giving drivers a smoother ride.
Work began August 9 and was originally expected to last 12 days. However, work crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) discovered problems beneath the roadway that required more work and time to repair than anticipated.
The bridge work is a continuation of the $2.8 million project that recently added two new roundabouts at the I-5/D Street interchange. The work is fully funded by the federal government and complements improvements the General Services Administration made at the Peace Arch port of entry.
