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. 16-23, you can expect to see on the D-to-M Streets Track and Signal Project:

Qwest continues doing work to transfer underground utilities on East D Street, and will then move to South 25th and South C Street to work on aerial utilities. This shoulder work will not require any lane closures.

Click will be rerouting and pulling fiber from South C Street to South Tacoma Way and end up on Delin Street. No traffic control is needed for this work.

Tacoma Water will patch pavement on South Tacoma Way from approximately the former Star Fuel and Ice driveway to the Tacoma Avenue Bridge. This will require an inside northbound lane closure on South Tacoma Way. Traffic will be maintained in each direction.

D-to-M Streets construction work
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 East C Street, demolishing pavement, and beginning excavation. The closure is expected to last until April 1. East D Street and Pacific Avenue will remain open as main arterials.

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 prior to the temporary closure of Pacific Avenue for 11 months.

Installation of temporary signals at South 27th and A Street, and South 27th and Pacific Avenue. 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 and will begin excavation 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 to do this work. Traffic will be maintained in both directions.

Storm work at the corner of South C Street and South Tacoma Way will require traffic control on both streets into early March.
