Yakima Avenue Bridge Deck Repair

Project Description

The project will provide an enhanced driving surface across the Yakima Avenue Bridge, pedestrian facilities, and bicycle route connecting the Tacoma’s South End neighborhoods to the Tacoma downtown area. This project will install a new cement concrete overlay on the bridge deck, new bridge deck expansion joints, and other minor bridge repairs. New bicycle accommodations extending to the north and south of the bridge will be incorporated to the pavement restriping for the project. ADA improvements to curb ramps will also be provided at the mid-block crossing between the Yakima Avenue Bridge and the Interstate 5 (I-5) Bridge, and at the crossing of the east side Northbound Center Street off-ramp. Rectangular Reflective Flashing Beacons will be installed at the mid-block crossing.
