Demolition explosion set for Tideflats at 9 a.m. Saturday

When the explosion hits tomorrow morning, don’t be afraid.

If you live near the Port of Tacoma or in Northeast Tacoma, you may hear a loud noise at around 9 a.m. Saturday. If you do, rest assured that it’s the result of a "planned, small-scale demolition" of a structure at the closed Pioneer Chlor Alkali facility on Alexander Avenue.

That’s the word this afternoon from the Port – although the demolition will not be on Port-owned land, nor is the demolition part of a Port project.
