The section of 112th Street East between Fruitland Avenue East and Woodland Avenue East that was closed June 25 for a road construction project reopened July 30---five days ahead of schedule.
Crews lowered the road by as much as five feet and installed curbs, gutters, sidewalks, drainage systems and pavement. This section of 112th is now finished, with the exception of an asphalt wearing course that will be applied in early fall, weather permitting. This work will not require additional road closures, although traffic delays are expected.
Work along 112th Street East between Fruitland Avenue E and 86th Street East will continue through the fall, although this section of road will remain open to traffic. An asphalt wearing course will also be applied to this section in early fall.
Part of a larger project
Pierce County is improving nearly a mile of 112th Street East from Woodland Avenue East to 86th Avenue East. The project is on schedule and is expected to be completed in the fall, weather permitting.
Improvements include:• Expanding to five lanes with a two-way, left-turn lane.• Adding concrete curbs, gutters, and sidewalks.• Adding an enclosed storm drain system, as well as stormwater treatment and storage facilities.• Adding a new traffic signal at 78th Avenue East.• Improving the traffic signal at Fruitland Avenue East.• Installing street lighting.
Northwest Construction, Inc., is the project's contractor. The contract amount for the project is $4.7 million.
