Normandy Road will be closed through June 17 for road improvements


Normandy Road will be closed again for eight more (largely dry) days for completion of the street tree portion of the project, as well as paving and striping.

Work was scheduled to start on Monday, June 12, and continue through June 17, the City said.

“The grates for the street tree boxes are arriving earlier than anticipated.”

Here’s more from a previous announcement:

The existing sidewalks will be replaced by pervious, water-permeable sidewalks in order to reduce the amount of storm water run-off entering the City’s storm sewers. Vegetated storm water infiltration cells will further reduce the amount of run-off going into the storm drains, which flow directly to the Sound or to one of the City’s creeks. In addition, the project will include the installation of underground electrical conduit to allow the future installation of pedestrian-level street lighting. A segment of Normandy Road will be closed during construction, west of 1st Avenue South and east of 3rd Ave SW. The road closure will be in effect beginning Monday morning 3/27/17. Local access and emergency access through the road closure area will be allowed. A detour route will be signed for through traffic. The project is scheduled to take between 40 and 50 working days to complete.

This project is partially funded by a Washington State Department of Ecology Water Quality grant, and by a grant from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB).
