Paving work planned this weekend

The contractor plans to pave the two east lanes of Port of Tacoma Road this weekend.

The work is weather dependent. While it is scheduled for Saturday, May 21, it may be necessary to move the paving work to Friday, May 20. The contractor will decide by Thursday morning which day paving will occur, and a notification will be sent to subscribers.

If the paving needs to be completed Friday, the two lanes of traffic in each direction will remain open. Tacoma police officers will be on-site to help direct traffic through the intersection at Port of Tacoma Road and Marshall Avenue.

The contractor plans to complete finishing work on the east lanes next week. The two lanes of through traffic are expected to move from the west lanes to the east lanes Friday, May 27.
