Parkland/Brookdale Interceptor Phase 3

Parkland/Brookdale Interceptor Phase 3 Construction Map Opens in new window

About the project

This project is the third of multiple phases necessary to provide increased capacity for the Parkland/Brookdale Interceptor. The existing 36-inch sewer interceptor between phase 2 and the future interceptor phases is expected to reach its capacity by the end of 2024.

To address that capacity need and to build a system that will last well into the future, Pierce County is constructing a 72-inch interceptor that will convey wastewater from the intersection of 131st Street East and A Street South to an existing sewer interceptor at 129th Street South and C Street South.

Future phases of the project will address other capacity issues in the existing system. 

The targeted project completion date is February 2023.

Traffic impacts

This project will include seven different work zones. The contractor will be working on both sides of Route 7 simultaneously to complete work when groundwater levels are seasonally low. 

The roads will be closed for through traffic, but access for local traffic and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times. Detour signs will be placed for drivers and pedestrians. Work hours consist of six 10-hour days per week, Monday through Saturday. There will be no work on observed holidays and Saturdays before a holiday.

Drivers should also expect two weekend closures at Route 7 and 129th Street South in the fall. More details will be provided at a later date.

  1. What is a sewer interceptor?
  2. What does this mean for me?
  3. Dewatering

A sewer interceptor is a major sewer line that receives wastewater flows from multiple collection lines. These could be main or trunk sewers, or force mains, or other kinds of sewer lines. This combined flow is then directed to a wastewater treatment facility or another interceptor.
