City of Ferndale staff say to expect the northbound I-5 on- and off-ramps at Portal Way to be closed next week beginning Monday, August 13th.

Capital Projects Manager Katy Radder says the compact roundabout being built where the ramps intersect with Portal Way is on schedule and paving during the final phase of the project will require closing the ramps. Radder also said to expect heavier traffic impacts Friday, August 10th when paving begins.

The I-5 ramp closures are expected to last up to 5 days.
