As you have probably noticed, the new pavement poured on Puyallup Street last year has failed.

The contractor will be out fixing the job, but it means further disruption along Puyallup Street/Fryar Avenue.

May 25: Work will begin with crews on scene. Expect congestion and delays but no closures.

May 31: Grinding up the failed asphalt. Expect flaggers, congestion and rough road but no closures.

June 2 at 7 pm – June 3 at 4 am: Paving is scheduled, which requires a full closure of Puyallup Street west of Tacoma Avenue to the Fryar Avenue bridge. Cars and passenger vehicles may use a detour route of Puyallup Street east of Tacoma Avenue to Elm/Zehnder. Because this work is being done through the evening, we do not want truck traffic impacting the residential neighborhoods of this detour. All freight tractor-trailers will be asked to use the 24th Street interchange or the Traffic Avenue interchange and will not be allowed on the detour route.
