I-5 off-ramp at Drain opens ahead of schedule

K-DOCK 92.9

The southbound Interstate 5 off-ramp at Exit 162 (Oregon 38 junction/Drain) is now open following a 12-day closure to replace damaged concrete in the adjacent travel lane.
 
The ramp, which is used by southbound I-5 motorists heading to Reedsport and the southern Oregon coast, had originally been scheduled to be closed 33 days, from June 16 to July 18.
 
However, following long traffic delays on Memorial Day weekend, ODOT and prime contractor Oregon Mainline Paving have been working on an expedited schedule to ensure traffic moves more quickly through the seven-mile work zone on the Independence Day weekend.
