Washington State Department of Transportation announcement.
TACOMA – Construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close East 27th/East Wiley Street at East L Street in Tacoma one more time to finish sidewalks, curbs, and paving.
Atkinson Construction crews will close the intersection around-the-clock from 7 a.m., Tuesday, June 21 through 5 p.m., Friday, June 24.
The closure allows crews to connect East 27th Street to align with the new East L Street bridge that spans Interstate 5. Some work is weather sensitive and may be rescheduled.
A signed detour will be in place using East Portland Avenue to Puyallup Avenue to East D Street and McKinley Way. Drivers can also use East N Street, East 26th Street and East L Street to Puyallup Avenue.
The new East L Street bridge is part of a project that widens I-5 and builds high occupancy vehicle lanes in Tacoma. Crews anticipate opening the new bridge to travelers this summer.
