SR 16/Anderson Creek Tributary to Sinclar Inlet – Fish Barrier Removal
Michele Britton, 360-874-3010
TIME/DAYS: See below:
DESCRIPTION: Replace existing culverts that carry Anderson Creek beneath SR16, SR 166, and Anderson Hill Road to improve fish passage. 
EXPECT:  See below:

  • The ramp from eastbound State Route 16 to eastbound State Route 166 (Bay Street) near Gorst has been closed while crews continue a culvert-installation project at that location. WSDOT  implemented this unplanned closure after observing motorists purposefully driving around highway barricades on westbound SR 166, and traveling westbound in eastbound SR 166 lanes to access westbound SR 16.
  • In early July, following a total closure of SR 166, WSDOT reopened access from eastbound SR 16 to eastbound SR 166. Westbound SR 166 remained closed. WSDOT started observing bold motorists making this unsafe and illegal maneuver to avoid using a signed detour and to save time.
  • When alerted to this driving behavior, WSDOT traffic engineers considered what alternatives could be employed to prevent the behavior. They came to the conclusion that reinstating a total closure was the only practical solution. The total closure of SR 166 at SR 16 will remain in place through the first week of August.

LOCATION: SR 305 at the Suquamish Way NE intersection.
EXPECT: Afternoon flagging by police officers will end on Friday, July 22.

From at 11 p.m. Friday, July 29 through 4 a.m. Monday, Aug. 1, the intersection of Portland Avenue and East 28th Street and the northbound I-5 exit to Portland Avenue will close to traffic. The closures allow contractor crews to finish rebuilding the intersection, which involves regrading and paving.

Drivers using the northbound I-5 collector/distributor to I-705 will be allowed to continue to downtown Tacoma, however they will not be able to reach the 26th Street exit. Drivers using the SR 7 ramp will be able to exit to 26th Street/Tacoma Dome and continue to northbound I-705. The temporary configuration will remain in effect through September.

Tips for Driving Through Work Zones

  • Pay attention - Driver inattention is the number one cause of work zone accidents.
  • Leave room between you and the car ahead of you - Most work zone accidents involve someone running into the car ahead of them. Drive defensively - be aware of what is happening around you.
  • Merge before you reach the work zone. 
  • Don't use cell phones or adjust your radio while driving through the work zone.
