Hello my happy winos,
I thought you all might be interested in this information Exit 133 to the down town area will be closing for 3 months. Please see the info below.
How to get around it.

Night ramp closures will continue in the vicinity of Exits #132 and #133 on Interstate 5 through this week as crews continue their preparatory work for the extended closure of the northbound I-5 exit to the Tacoma City Center (#133). 
Wednesday and Thursday night, and onto Friday
Wednesday through Thursday nights, crews will close the northbound exit to the City Center (#133) at 10:30 p.m.  Motorists will be detoured through Exit #132 and the ramp will reopen each following morning at 4:30 a.m.   Just after midnight on Friday (officially Saturday morning), the ramp will be closed again, signaling the beginning of the 3-month closure. 
Countdown to ramp closure
4 days and counting…..did you know that when the original Nalley Valley Viaduct opened to traffic in 1971, 40,000 vehicles drove on it daily…and today, 132,000 vehicles drive on it every day?
Don’t forget to forward the detour video link to your friends and family, and to encourage them to use alternate routes while Exit #133 is closed.  Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.  As always, feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments.

p.s.  Check out our state website.  We’re “going orange” this week because it is National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week.   Give ‘em a Brake!
