108th Street East will be resurfaced between Ainsworth Avenue South and Pacific Avenue South from Sept. 6-16.
The road will remain open, although it will be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic. Motorists should expect 15-minute delays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. The work may be postponed if it rains.
In order to extend the life of the pavement and improve the condition of the roadway, crews will break up the existing concrete slabs into smaller sections and apply four inches of asphalt over the top.
Crews previously upgraded curb ramps along this section of 108th Street East to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Puget Paving, Inc. is the contractor. The construction work will cost approximately $735,525 and is funded with County Road Funds.
This work is part of Pierce County’s pavement preservation program. A list of additional locations expected to be resurfaced in 2016 is available here.
