Pacific Avenue Reconstruction Starting
The signs are going up, the lightpoles are coming down. The ground is opening, but the street are not closing.
On Wednesday, January 2nd, contstruction begins on Pacific Avenue. The first phase of construction will be focused on the stretch from 9th to 13th and is expected to run until April.
To help keep everyone up to speed, the City has prepared a detailed detour plan that we've uploaded here. One thing you'll note is that there are no actual street closures. You can still get to your favorite office/shop/restaurant. This does not mean to expect a little more dust and a few more people in reflective gear - because both will be out in full force.
In addition to the detour plans, there is a project specific page on the City's site detailing the project with updates and information: www.cityoftacoma.org/pacave
We will continue to post more information as the project progresses as well.
