New project on 176th Street East begins in early July

Construction work along 176th Street East from B Street East to 14th Avenue East in Frederickson will begin July 8.

This project is one of several Pierce County projects to improve safety and relieve traffic congestion through the 176th Street East corridor.

Beginning in July, crews will clear areas outside the existing roadway, then excavate and embank in preparation for utility relocation. Utility companies will relocate facilities for future construction. The roadway will remain open during this work, although motorists can expect to see construction and utility vehicles parked along the shoulder and expect occasional delays.

During this project, the roadway will be expanded to four lanes with turning and U-turn lanes, and raised medians. Concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks will be installed. Pervious concrete will be used on sidewalks and shoulders to reduce surface water runoff.

Crews will upgrade the traffic signal at B Street East as well as add street lighting and an enclosed stormwater drainage and treatment system.

Tucci & Sons, Inc. is the contractor. The construction contract cost is approximately $5.4 million. The work is expected to be finished in spring 2015.
