Tacoma residents wondering about road construction and utility work in their neighborhood have a new place to turn for answers.

The City of Tacoma has launched a new website that allows residents to find out more information about the road projects that impact their commutes and movement around the city.

The site allows users to search by address, business district, City Council district or neighborhood district.  Users can also select a time period they are interested in.

The projects are highlighted in blue. Users can click the project and find the construction time period and a description of what is being done.

“Residents often wonder about construction that they see in their neighborhoods or while driving around Tacoma,” City Council Member Ryan Mello, chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, said in a press release. “This new tool offers an easy way for people to find out details about a project, how long it will be under construction and what other projects are scheduled to happen in the near future.”

Pierce County also provides information about ongoing construction projects. The information can be found here.
