We've completed the preliminary engineering for the project and have transitioned into the final engineering phase.  The project is a continuation of a project currently under design on Canyon Road East from 99th Street Court East to 84th Street East (CRP 5726).
About the Project
Planned improvements to Canyon Road East from 400' North of 84th Street East to 72nd Street East (CRP 5736) are intended to enhance safety and relieve traffic congestion, and include the following:
  • Expanding to five lanes with a two-way left-turn lane.
  • Adding concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks from 400' North of 84th Street East to 72nd Street East.
  • Adding street lighting.
  • Improving the traffic signal at 72nd Street East.
  • Adding an enclosed storm drain system, as well as stormwater treatment and storage facilities.
This project has been identified as a priority by the County Council and is included in the 2013-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

Other work being done by Pierce County:
  • During the Summer 2012, the county overlayed this portion of Canyon Road East. This was necessary maintenance to help improve the pavement condition until the construction of this project (CRP 5736) can occur.
Project Timeline
November 2013 to August 2016: Complete preliminary engineering and right-of-way plans.

August 2016 to December 2017: Complete final engineering.

Beyond: Right-of-way acquisition, environmental documentation, construction plans, specifications, estimates, and actual construction will all be determined based on availability of funding.
