Work in the WSU forest is slated to begin next week.

According to a work and traffic plan by Abston Henricksen Land & Timber Co., the company is cutting trees to the 35 acre site that will house the future Costco building.

The logging is starting this Monday, March 27, and will continue through Wednesday, April 5, mostly at night.

Night coommuters who use SR 410 will be dealing with some lane closures as logging gets closer to the highway.

Traffic control is expected to begin around 10:30 p.m. April 1 with flaggers being set up about 200 feet east and west of the project site.

Flaggers will stop traffic in both directions to allow for safe tree cutting along the right-of-way for periods between three to 10 minutes for about five hours, the plan reads.

The company expects operations will not continue past 6 a.m. on April 2 for any reason.

South Prairie Road will also be affected by logging.

Flaggers will be placed near the South Prairie Road East/SR 410 intersection and in front of the medical center to control traffic on April 1 and 2. The work is slated to begin when the work on SR 410 is finished and estimated to be finished no later than 6 a.m. on April 2.

Flaggers will also be placed near the intersection of South Prairie Road East and 201th Avenue Court East and in front of the medical center on April 5, starting at 9 a.m.

Work is expected to finish no later than 2:30 p.m. that day.
