Trail closure at Chambers Creek Regional Park

The Grandview walking trail along Grandview Drive in University Place is closed to the public through Friday, Oct. 18. The trail runs between the North Meadow parking area north of Cirque Drive and the entrance to the park at 62nd Street Court West. The planned closure allows for installation of a sewer bypass line necessary for Pierce County's rehabilitation of the sewer pipe along Grandview Drive between Heitman Way and 64th Street W.

Wooden barricades are in place at each end of the closed portion of the trail. The barricades have a “Trail Closed Ahead” sign and arrows directing walkers to detour to the sidewalk area paralleling Grandview Drive.

Public Works and Utilities is rehabilitating 9,600 feet of existing 30-inch sewer pipe and about 30 manholes along Grandview Drive to prolong the pipe's life and make it structurally sound. A new pipe liner will be installed and cured in place, which will reduce the need for large road excavations and extended road lane closures. The pipe liner protects the pipe from hydrogen sulfide corrosion. This method was chosen because it was the alternative with the lowest cost and least impact to the public during construction.
