38th Avenue East / 152nd Street East (CRP 5835)

What's happening 

​A project to add a new traffic signal system at the 38th Avenue East and 152nd Street East intersection started Aug. 16. The work is expected to be completed in late February 2020. ​

The intersection is located to the east of Naches Trail Elementary School. 

About the project

During summer and fall, crews installed curbs, gutters, sidewalks, curb ramps, and electrical infrastructure for the new signal. The radii of the intersection was increased to accommodate larger vehicles. Crews repaved the intersection in October.

The work was suspended Oct. 21 while traffic signal poles are being manufactured. Work is expected to resume Jan. 27, 2020. Once construction resumes, crews will install the signal poles, street lights, signal cabinets and final pavement markings. The new traffic signal system is expected to be completed in late February. 

Titan Earthwork LLC is the contractor. The construction cost is approximately $670,000 and is funded with Pierce County traffic impact fees and Federal Highway Safety Improvement Funds.
