Lakeway Drive on-ramp to I-5 closed Sunday morning

The Lakeway Drive on-ramp to northbound Interstate 5 will be closed Sunday morning, Jan. 18, so crews can repair guardrail damaged in a recent crash.

The ramp, which is actually off King Street, will be closed from 5 a.m. to noon, according to the state Department of Transportation. Drivers wishing to get on northbound I-5 will be directed to the Samish Way on-ramp.

About 100 feet of the guardrail near the ramp was taken out Jan. 2 by a semi truck. No one was hurt in that crash.

On Jan. 12, a car went off the freeway at the same spot and, without a guardrail to stop it, rolled down an embankment until it came to rest within inches of a house. The 19-year-old driver wasn’t injured.
