D to M Street Construction Update

Sound Transit continues work on the D to M Street Track and Signal Project connecting Sounder trains from Tacoma Dome Station to Lakewood.For the week of Feb. 9-16, you can expect to see the following work on the D-to-M Streets Track and Signal Project:

• Qwest continues work for a few more weeks to transfer underground utilities on East D Street.

• Level 3 Communications Company is working on a fiber optic line in the vicinity of 27th and Delin Street.

• Crews working for Sound Transit closed East C Street from East 25th Street to East 26th Street for roadway and street improvements. This week crews will begin installing storm pipe on C Street. The closure is expected to last until April 1. East D Street and Pacific Avenue will remain open as main arterials. Doing this work now, rather than later as originally slated, will help to complete the project sooner.

• Continued work on A Street between South 26th and South 25th for sewer line work. This work involves excavation of A Street and installation of sewer pipe. A Street will reopen in April prior to the temporary closure of Pacific Avenue for 11 months.

• Installation of temporary lighting and signals at South 27th and A Street, and South 24th and A Street. Temporary lane or shoulder closures will be in place for this work on South 27th and A Street.

• Continued work between Delin Street and South Tacoma Way. Crews are installing piles for the shoring wall that is part of the temporary bypass for the future traffic detour during the temporary closure of Pacific Avenue for 11 months. Temporary lane closures on South Tacoma Way and Delin Street are needed for this work to take place.

• Building abatement will occur for the buildings slated for demolition for a few weeks.

• Storm work will take place at the corner of South C Street and South Tacoma Way. There will be traffic control on both South C Street and South Tacoma Way during this work, which will take place until the end of February.
