STADIUM WAY ARTERIAL PROJECT >>>

Champagne corks popped, feet danced and copper nails were stored away at the Sky Terrace Condominiums Wednesday when the giant tree blocking the view of Mount Rainier fell onto Stadium Way. Yes, it's been noisy. Yes, it's been dirty. Yes, it's been a huge pain in the ass to drive through downtown Tacoma to access the Tacoma Spur. That said, the Stadium Way Arterial Project produced many smiles that rainy day.

What else is up with the project?

Stadium Way Arterial Project open house will be held Monday, Dec. 3 from 7-7 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the first floor of the Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St.  City staff and the contractor, Ceccanti, Inc., will discuss detours and plans for the upcoming inclement weather, as well as next steps for the ongoing ground improvement construction, including retaining wall work that is slated to begin in December. City staff and the contractor will also be available to answer questions regarding the project.

The tree that blocked the view of Mount Rainier.

According to the city of Tacoma, "The Stadium Way Arterial Project involves the reconstruction of the roadway, including upgrades to street lighting, sanitary, storm and water utilities, a new traffic signal at South Fourth Street, subsurface stabilization, and the construction of large retaining walls and other Complete Street elements such as wide sidewalks, landscaping, bike lanes and other improvements related to Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility.
