Turn lane to be added on Chambers Creek Road at 64th Street West

A turn lane will be added on Chambers Creek Road at 64th Street West in University Place to relieve traffic congestion at the intersection. Construction will begin Aug. 15 and is expected to be complete in the beginning of September. Motorists should expect delays in the immediate vicinity of the work.

Traffic currently backs up on Chambers Creek Road as cars wait to turn left onto 64th Street West. The project will provide designated left and right turn lanes from Chambers Creek Road.

The project comes following a traffic study conducted on Chambers Creek Road to measure the impact the Chambers Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion would have on commuters. The expansion project is projected to temporarily add an estimated 400 workers at the peak of construction beginning in December.

"The ongoing expansion of the plan was the impetus for the project, as we expect increased construction traffic in the area," said Ryan Dooley, Pierce County Public Works and Utilities project manager. "We worked with the City of University Place to develop a good solution that will provide a long-term benefit to the community after the expansion project is complete in 2016."

Active Construction Inc. is the contractor. The construction contract cost is approximately $130,000.
