TEMPORARY LANE CLOSURES AT MARTIN WAY E AND CARPENTER ROAD SE INTERSECTION
LACEY, WA, October 24, 2011: Beginning Wednesday, October 26, 2011, there will be increased construction activity at the intersection of Martin Way E and Carpenter Road SE. Crews will be installing reclaimed water, storm water, and private utility systems across Martin Way and conducting work on traffic signals. The intersection will remain open to traffic, but there will be temporary lane closures. The public should expect increased delays over the next three weeks. It is recommended to plan extra time to travel through this area or to use an alternate route when possible.
This work is part of the Carpenter Road Reconstruction project which will widen the roadway between Pacific Avenue SE and Martin Way E to four traffic lanes, including bike lanes, sidewalks, planter strips, and street lighting. The project also includes the installation of a reclaimed water main, relocation of the sanitary sewer lift station, undergrounding of overhead utility lines, signal modifications at Pacific Avenue SE and at Martin Way E intersections, and wetland restoration at Woodland Creek Community Park. Construction is funded by grants from the Transportation Improvement Board and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, in addition to funds from Thurston County and the City of Lacey.
