TRAFFIC ALERT

Notice Date: September 8, 2017

Released by: Public Works – Brandon Hicks

PAVING WORK ON CAPITOL BOULEVARD
X STREET TO TROSPER ROAD

7AM – 6 PM
Monday, September 11, 2017

EXPECT TRAFFIC INTERRUPTIONS

Work is scheduled to complete fog seal and pavement marking work on Capitol Boulevard from “X” Street to Trosper Road.

Significant impacts to traffic are expected.

FOG SEAL

 A fog seal is a light application of a diluted slow-setting asphalt emulsion to the surface of an aged pavement surface. This work can only be done during daytime hours to properly dry the fog seal.
  • The two way, left turn lane and north and southbound inside lanes will be intermittently closed.
  • Traffic will not be able to cross through the work zone while the asphalt seal is being applied and pavement markers are being installed. 
  • Access to cross streets and businesses will be limited to right in and right out turns only.

If you travel in the area and are unable to make a turn due to traffic control or work in progress, you will need to travel past your destination and find the most suitable cross street to turn around.

Paving work is also being completed on several other streets throughout the City so minor delays may be experienced elsewhere.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience during these final days of road work.

Call the City of Tumwater Public Works Department at (360) 754-4140 with construction questions or concerns.
