About the Project


Improvements are planned to 1.5 miles of 198th Avenue East between 144th Street East and 120th Street East (CRP 5675). The project will be built in phases as Tehaleh development occurs and also accommodate future widening by Pierce County.

The initial, or Phase 1, project will be split into two segments:
  • Segment 1 will construct the roadway consisting of four lanes between 144th Street East and 128th Street East.
  • Segment 2 will construct the roadway consisting of four lanes between 128th Street East and 120th Street East.

Late 2019 to 2020: Construct Segment 2 between 128th Street East and 120th Street East. Construction timeline depends on time for right-of-way acquisition.
