BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Drivers looking to go northbound on I-5 from the Guide Meridian were disappointed to see the on-ramp blocked this morning, October 25th.

According to Washington State Patrol Trooper Rocky Oliphant, troopers responded to a disabled vehicle on the on-ramp about 7am. They arrived to find a semi truck and trailer that was partially blocking the ramp. The truck and trailer could not be moved since the trailer had buckled and was dragging on the ground.

A tow truck arrived to clear the roadway shortly after 9am and the ramp had to be closed. As of 9:50am, it was estimated the ramp would remain closed until about 11am.
