Construction Begins on Pedestrian Crossings at Various Locations in Olympia

On Monday, April 23, the City’s contractor, Totem Electric of Tacoma, will begin making improvements to pedestrian crossings at various locations. This project will replace the existing in-pavement flashing crosswalk lights with new flashing beacons at the following locations:

  • Capital Mall Drive at Capital Medical Center
  • Black Lake Boulevard at 14th Avenue
  • 5th Avenue at Capitol Lake Dam
  • 5th Avenue at Sylvester Street
  • 4th Avenue at Bayview Thriftway
  • 4th Avenue at Sylvester Street
  • Capitol Way at Tivoli Fountain
  • State Avenue at Wilson Street
  • Martin Way at Chehalis Western Trail

Travelers should expect lane restrictions and traffic delays during construction. Flaggers will direct motorists and pedestrians through the construction areas. The project is expected to be complete by the end of July 2018.
