Travel alert:
Coming from Seattle:  WSDOT is currently working on traffic revisions to the I-5 freeway going through Tacoma that may impact travel to and from Bellarmine Prep where we are holding our feisanna. Please keep an eye on Google maps so you can plan ahead and get to the competition on time. Real-time traveler information is available from the WSDOT app and by following the WSDOT regional Twitter feed

Coming From Olympia and Portland:  Northbound Interstate 5 near Pacific Avenue in Olympia will be reduced to two lanes from 10 p.m. Friday, July 28, until 5 a.m. Monday, July 31. Expect significant delays though the Olympia area. 

To help reduce weekend congestion on northbound I-5 approaching Lacey, WSDOT asks drivers to:

  • Plan extra time for trips on I-5 in the South Sound and Portland areas.
  • Travel early–before 9 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
  • Avoid using northbound I-5 from in town trips in Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater.
