Drivers can expect full nighttime lane closures at Clover Creek Drive Southwest and the rail crossing starting Monday, June 6. Sound Transit’s contractor will be digging trenches along the railroad and installing a tube to protect electric cables, the agency says.
The traffic lanes will be closed starting as early as 8 p.m. and will reopen by 5 a.m. the following morning. This work is anticipated to last one week.
What to expect
- Neighbors, motorists and businesses can expect work along the existing railroad track route that includes:
- Equipment will sound similar to a truck engine running and vacuuming gravel.
- Access to residence and businesses will be maintained through Glenwood Avenue Southwest.
- Work will take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.
WSDOT has contracted with Sound Transit to deliver the track and signal work, including upgrading crossings, bridge rehabilitation and construction and retaining wall construction.
The Point Defiance Bypass project includes a new Amtrak passenger train station in Tacoma’s Freighthouse Square, new and upgraded track between Tacoma and DuPont and five reconstructed at-grade crossings, each with advanced warning and signal systems. When all work is complete in 2017 it will provide more frequent, reliable and faster Amtrak Cascades passenger rail service in Washington.Print This Post
