Schuster Parkway to Remain Partially Closed through April 30


Inclement weather and a material delay will postpone the complete reopening of Schuster Parkway until April 30, 2014. 

The southbound lane of Schuster Parkway accessing I-705 is now estimated to re-open Sunday, March 23.  The southbound access to Pacific Avenue will remain closed between South 4th and South 7th streets until Wednesday, April 30. This work completes extensive stormwater system improvements designed to prevent flooding and improve storm drainage on Commerce Street in the vicinity of the Spanish Steps. 

After I-705 access opens detour signs will continue to direct downtown traffic from southbound Schuster Parkway to South 4th Street, to Dock Street and into downtown; or from North 30th Street, to McCarver Street, to Tacoma Avenue, to Stadium Way and into downtown. View a map of the detour routes here. Northbound lanes will remain open and continue to experience limited impact.

The Schuster Parkway sidewalk will remain closed to pedestrians and users through April 30. The pedestrian detour will continue to follow the vehicle detour. 

For more information about this closure, visit cityoftacoma.org/stadiumway, or contact Erik Ward with the City’s Environmental Services Department at (253) 502-2171.
