College Street and 22nd Avenue Roundabout
The contractor is continuing to work on sidewalks and water lines on the east side of College Street. Next week utility crews will mobilize on site to work on lowering and moving underground utilities that are in the way. After that construction of a large trench to move overhead utilities underground throughout the project site will begin. This utility work is anticipated to go on through early 2020.
During all of this utility work, College Street will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction. Major delays are expected at times, please use alternate routes if possible.
This project provides for the installation of a multilane roundabout at the intersection of College Street SE and 22nd Avenue SE. This project is the first phase of a multi-phase project on College Street corridor to enhance multimodal access, reduce speed, provide enhanced pedestrian accessibility, and improve overall safety. Active Construction from Puyallup, Washington, is the construction contractor on this project.
Construction will begin in the summer of 2019, and is expected to last approximately 2 years.

The College St and Yelm Hwy Water and Overlay projects provides for an asphalt overlay of College St from Mullen Rd to Rainier Rd and Yelm Hwy from city limit lines on the west to Ruddell Rd.

The work is complete. Please contact the inspector, Keven Inman at 360-239-0333 if any restoration work was not completed to your satisfaction.
Capitol City Golf Club Estates Water and Sewer Improvements
Due to changes in fire suppression standards over the years, the City of Lacey must replace the water lines in Capitol City Golf Club Estates with larger diameter lines. This will provide an adequate amount of water flow from the hydrants for firefighting. The City of Lacey is also designing a sewer line to serve the area. In 2006, the City observed nitrate concentrations increase in drinking water from Well #4 (located on West Sarazen SE). City staff believes the increase is primarily due to inadequately treated wastewater effluent from on-site septic systems. We are currently in the design phase of this project and anticipate construction to take place in 2020. Please contact Linsey Fields at 360-486-8707 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

The Regional Athletic Complex (RAC) ball field playground safety netting was damaged during a snow event this past winter. As a result, the playground has remained closed. The City will be replacing the damaged support poles and netting, to include modifications so the net may be lowered in the event of future inclement weather. Work is to begin in late 2019 and the playground will be reopened once complete.
Work has begun and is expected to be complete by January 2020.
This project provides for construction of a two story wood framed structure closely matching the original 1894 Northern Pacific Railway depot design that once stood near this site.

The structure will be utilized as a trail amenity containing toilet rooms, picnic area, and associated spaces. J.A.M. Construction from Olympia, Washington, is the construction contractor on this project.
