A Pierce County project to improve Canyon Road East between 192nd Street East and Frederickson Industrial Park Road East began April 25. The bulk of the work is expected to be completed by the fall.
Major construction work has been suspended until Sept. 26 while we wait for traffic signal poles to come in for the new signal at Canyon Road East and 184th Street East. The contractor may be onsite working on erosion control, street lighting, or other tasks. Motorists will see minor traffic impacts during this time.
Final striping of the roadway is expected to take place in mid-August.

Motorists should expect minor traffic impacts on weekdays throughout the project. Motorists may want to consider taking 192nd Street East to 38th Avenue East to 176th Street East throughout the project to avoid the work area.
Both southbound lanes will be open on weekdays between 4:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. Lane restrictions may be in place outside of these hours.
Both northbound lanes will be open 5 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on weekdays to support the morning commute. Northbound traffic may be reduced to one lane outside of these hours.
Nighttime work may be needed throughout the project. Alternating one-way traffic may be needed on 184th Street East, 187th Street East and 189th Street East during working hours.
Miles Resources is the contractor. The construction cost is approximately $2.5 million. It is funded with County Road Funds.
