University Place public works crews in conjunction with Pierce County
road crews removed existing vehicle lane stripes and painted new ones
on Mildred Street from 19th Street West to Regents Boulevard to improve
safety and access to businesses along that stretch of road. Previously,
the road had two southbound and two northbound lanes. It now has two
southbound lanes, a center two-way left turn lane and only one
northbound lane. The reconfiguration of the lanes is temporary. As
development continues to occur on the Fircrest side of Mildred Street,
a second northbound lane will be added, creating a five-lane road with
a center two-way left turn lane.
