Phase 1 of this project included improvements from Washington Street to Orchard Street and continued on Cirque Drive into University Place. Construction of Phase 1 was completed in 2018.


Phase 2 of the project focuses on South 56th Street from South Washington Street to Tacoma Mall Boulevard. This project will replace pavement along the corridor, upgrade curb ramps and sidewalks to meet ADA requirements, install traffic signal upgrades, and install bike facilities on a parallel route connecting the South Tacoma Sounder Station with the Tacoma Mall Transit Center.


Bike facilities will be added on South 54th Street and will make connections to the South Tacoma Sounder Station via Washington Street and to the Tacoma Mall Transit Center via South Fife, South 48th, South Oakes, and South 47th Street. This project will construct Tacoma’s first parking protected bike lanes and two-way cycle track.


Phase 3 is a University Place project.
