Work to Complete Martin Way Transit Project Requires Overnight Ramp and Lane Closures

Olympia, Wa – Final work on Intercity Transit’s Martin Way Park & Ride Direct Access Project will require overnight closures of the northbound ramp from Martin Way to Interstate 5 (I-5), and the single right lane of I-5 closest to the affected ramp. Closures will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, and Thursday, March 21, 2024, from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. The closures are necessary to install new lighting, complete electrical work, and pour concrete.

Travelers using Martin Way to access northbound I-5 at this location are advised to use alternate routes during the closures. Northbound Olympia Express (Route 620) may experience slight schedule delays due to trips being re-routed to access northbound I-5.

Traffic control measures and detours will be in place during all ramp and lane closures. Construction is weather dependent. Updates or changes to the planned closure dates will be posted on electronic signage to keep motorists informed.

This is the final step in Intercity Transit’s improvements at the Martin Way Park & Ride to improve bus access and provide faster service for Olympia Express riders. We appreciate everyone’s patience throughout the duration of the project.

Please contact Intercity Transit’s Customer Service at 360-786-1881 with questions or for service information.
