Construction Begins on State Avenue Bulb-outs

Beginning today City crews will install two bulb-outs for future street trees on the south side of State Avenue, between Washington Street and Capitol Way. These areas will be used to replace trees that were removed during the original sidewalk project. Trees will be planted in late fall.  During this time there will be no parking on this section of State Avenue. Area businesses will remain open and patrons will be allowed access. 
 
Travelers should expect lane restrictions and traffic delays during construction. Flaggers will direct motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists through the construction area when necessary. The project is expected to last 1 to 2 weeks.
