Partial walking trail closure on Chambers Creek Road

A portion of the East Slope Walking Trail located near the north entrance of the Chambers Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant in University Place will close Aug. 7-15 so crews can install water and electrical utilities as part of the ongoing expansion of the plant.

The portion of trail that will close runs parallel to the Chambers Creek Road West. Wooden barricades with “Trail Closed Ahead” signs will be placed at each end of the closed portion of the trail.

The $353 million plant expansion will increase sewer capacity, enable Pierce County to repair and replace aging infrastructure, and introduce new technologies that help protect the environment. The expansion is expected to be completed in fall 2016.

More information about the expansion can be found at
