SR 167 - SW of Grandview Ave to W of 87th Ave E - Paving


August 2017

  • Work on this project is largely complete. The project repaved a 5-mile section of State Route 167 also known as River Road.
  • The work occurred in the lanes between 18th Street NW near Puyallup and Grandview Avenue near Tacoma.
  • Information about lane closures is available at the Olympic Region Weekly Construction and Traffic Updates web page.

Why is WSDOT repaving five miles of State Route 167, also known as River Road, between Tacoma and Puyallup?
This section of SR 167 has cracks and ruts in many places that can lead to potholes. The project will extend the life of the highway and provide a smoother ride for the 27,000 vehicles that travel through this area every day.

The End Result
This project will improve the ride quality of the highway and extend the life of the roadway. It also will reduce the need for emergency closures and costly repairs.

Project Benefits

  • Preserves infrastructure and extends the life of the highway.
  • Reduces the need for costly emergency maintenance repairs and unexpected closures.
