East 40th Street GSI and Utility Improvements

Overview

The City of Tacoma's Environmental Services Department, Public Works Department, and Tacoma Public Utilities have partnered to plan and implement an integrated approach to retrofit the East 40th Street roadway from McKinley Avenue to Portland Avenue. The new permeable roadway will be designed with traffic safety improvements for reducing speeds and an enhanced pedestrian and bicycle experience on a new shared use path. The improvements will also include green infrastructure bioswales, new stormwater and water pipes, and new sidewalks and curb ramps. Public and private utilities will also be replaced in coordination within East 40th Street from McKinley Avenue to Portland Avenue.
