Northbound drivers on Sixth Avenue South will have access to I-5 on-ramps at Sixth and Spokane during the closures.

Northbound East Marginal Way at South Spokane Street will be closed tonight, December 8, from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. tomorrow morning. The street will be closed to both northbound and southbound traffic next Monday-Thursday, December 12-15 from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. each following morning.
