Periodic Road Closures for Street Repairs Planned Over Coming Months


Over the next few months, the City of Tacoma’s Street Operations Division will perform street repairs at the following locations:


  • 45th Avenue Northeast from Browns Point Boulevard to Northshore Parkway
  • Norpoint Way Northeast from 29th Street Northeast to 49th Avenue Northeast


This work is being performed to prepare the road for chip seal maintenance scheduled in August.

There will be periodic closures of these roads, with local access allowed at all times to residents living within the work zone. There is no plan to close these roads overnight, unless it is deemed necessary. Detours and signs notifying traffic of the dates and times of this work will be in place.All repairs are weather dependent and rescheduling may be required, updates will be posted on the pre-construction signs.


Those with questions or concerns may contact Project Supervisor Rich Barber at  rbarber@cityoftacoma.org or(253) 591-5497.


The Street Repair and Maintenance Program is responsible for maintaining 857 lane miles of main arterial streets and 8,610 residential blocks. For more information, visit cityoftacoma.org.
