Project Update

Tucci & Sons, Inc. is the General Contractor who will be performing the work. Construction has started and is expected to be complete Spring/Summer 2022.


The contractor is currently working on Fawcett between 21st and 19th Street and along South 21st Street between Tacoma Avenue and Jefferson Avenue.

Pedestrians and local traffic will be permitted within the work zone area. Traffic delays will continue until April 2022.

Project News

City of Tacoma's Public Works Department held a virtual public meeting on September 8, 2021, to provide additional information about the project.

Project Description

South 21st Street from Tacoma Avenue to Jefferson Avenue, and Fawcett Avenue from S. 19th to S. 21st Street will be reconstructed to include new asphalt and concrete pavement, lighting, utilities (water, power and stormwater and wastewater sewers), vehicle/pedestrian detection, street trees, and pedestrian-related improvements such as new sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks, median refuge islands, pavement markings and a hybrid pedestrian beacon (HAWK beacon) at the intersection of S. 21st Street and Fawcett Avenue.


Additionally, to support Fawcett Avenue being the main bicycle boulevard through downtown, mid-block traffic-calming bulbouts will be constructed along with related pavement markings (sharrows), signs and bicycle detection between S. 21st and S. 19th Street.

Project Schedule

Construction is expected to begin in September 2021 and last approximately 7 - 8 months.


Traffic and Parking Changes During Construction

South 21st Street and S. Fawcett Street will be reduced to one-lane of traffic during construction (direction will vary over project).  On-Street parking on S. 21st Street will remain open on the side of the street that is not under construction.  Pedestrian/Bicycle routes will be provided through the construction zones at all times. Electronic message boards will be placed along the corridor notifying drivers of all traffic changes.


Project Outreach

Coordination with local stakeholders has been ongoing.  Informational flyers will be sent to all residents and businesses in the area notifying them of the pending construction.  Notification will also be provided via social media and this website. Seven days before the start of construction, electronic message boards will be placed along the corridor notifying drivers of the pending work.
