The Stadium Way Arterial Improvement project construction started today.

No work on Sunday, but on Monday morning construction on Commerce Street will start at 7 a.m.

Traffic on Commerce Street will be one-way southbound (toward downtown) during the duration of the work. The public can expect to see ‘No-Park’ signs on the street before then and detours will be in place before there are road closures.

This phase of work includes removal of the existing pavement, upgrades to street lighting, new sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and other utilities, new pavement, and sidewalks and pedestrian crossings with improvements to Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility, landscaping, bike lanes and other Complete Streets concepts.

Additional project information is available at www.cityoftacoma.org/stadiumway.

    This work is long overdue…as busy as this section of road is, it should have been done earlier instead of all the patchwork that didn’t last! It got pretty dangerous to avoid the holes that tried to throw you into the guardrail by moving to the left and not getting hit by on-coming traffic down the hill!
