Northbound I-5 ramp to Sleater-Kinney to be closed overnight for repairs

A collision on Interstate 5 in Olympia involving a tractor-trailer and car closed two northbound lanes for two hours Tuesday night, according to the Washington State Patrol.

No one was injured in the crash near Exit 108, but the truck pushed a jersey barrier about 75 feet, lost its trailer, and a fuel tank became dislodged just before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Trooper Todd Bartolac said.

It did not result in a fire, but Olympia fire crews responded to contain the spill, he said.

The state Department of Transportation said the northbound I-5 ramp to Sleater-Kinney Road was to be closed until 4 a.m. Thursday so road crews can repair the barrier.

“During those times, drivers will detour via Martin Way. Drivers are encouraged to add some extra time to their trips,” the DOT news release reads.
