Engineering: We are preparing to work on the final engineering phase for the project. This includes finalizing all the details for all construction elements involved in the project and preparing a complete PS&E contract package.
Land: Right-Of-Way plans were finalized in February 2015.
Environmental: NEPA was completed in April 2015.
About the Project
Planned improvements to Canyon Road East from 99th Street Court East to 84th Street East (CRP 5726) are intended to enhance safety and relieve traffic congestion, and include the following:
Expanding to five lanes with a two-way left-turn lane.
Adding concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks from 96th Street East to 84th Street East.
Adding street lighting.
Improving the traffic signal at 84th Street East and adding a traffic signal at 96th Street East.
Adding an enclosed storm drain system, as well as stormwater treatment and storage facilities.
Other work done by Pierce County in this area
The Surface Water Management Division completed construction of their Canyon Creek Stream Enhancement and Flood Mitigation Project (D138) from 90th Street East to 84th Street East just east of Canyon Road East in 2010.
During the Summer 2012, the county overlayed this portion of Canyon Road East. This was necessary maintenance to help the pavement condition hold up until the construction of this project (CRP 5726) can occur.
August 2015: Transition into the final engineering phase.
Beyond August 2015: Work begins on the right-of-way acquisition process and the development of construction plans, specifications, and estimate. Actual construction will be dependent on the availability of funding.
