LISTEN: I-5 Closed For 20 Miles In Washington State Due To Flooding

CHEHALIS, Wash. — Interstate 5 is closed in both directions for 20 miles in Lewis and Thurston counties due to floodwaters from the Chehalis River.

The closure from US 12/MP 68 south of Chehalis to Grand Mound/MP 88 is expected to last for several days until the waters recede.  Drivers are asked to delay travels until then.

The Chehalis River spilled onto the freeway near 13th Street/MP 77 on Friday morning.
