This project will involve the widening and reconstruction of East Lacey Boulevard, from 10th Avenue to east of Sierra Drive, to facilitate two lanes in each direction of travel plus a center dual left turn lane. Improvements will include the reconstruction of existing pavement section, installation of a new drainage collection/disposal system including construction of two new drainage basins, installation of curbs, gutters, sidewalks, drive approaches and ADA ramps, additional street lighting, and installation of a traffic signal system at East Lacey Boulevard and 9th Avenue.

Drainage and pedestrian safety will also be improved with the addition of curb, gutter, sidewalks and street lighting.

The design phase of this project is fully funded from a combination of the City's Capital Improvement Program and federal grants.
