TACOMA – Daytime travelers who use State Route 509 in Tacoma will want to watch for daytime roadwork.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Dec 18, and Tuesday, Dec. 19, Washington State Department of Transportation crews will close the right lane of northbound SR 509 near the exit to Portland Avenue. The left lane will remain open.
During the lane closure, crews will make repairs to an attenuator between SR 509 and the Portland Avenue exit. An attenuator is a protective system that helps slow an errant vehicle.
The exit to Portland Avenue will remain open during the work.
Whenever near work zones please:
- Slow down – drive the posted speeds, they’re there for your safety.
- Be kind – our workers are out there helping to keep you safe and improve the roadways.
- Pay attention – both to workers directing you and surrounding traffic.
- Stay calm – leave early; no meeting or appointment is worth risking someone’s life.
