Greetings | Saludos | salaam | 問候 |lời chào hỏi| salamu,

This week, crews are finishing preparing the road for paving. Today, Thursday, May 9 at 7 AM, crews closed the eastbound lane on S Columbian Way between Beacon Ave S and 24th Ave S to do base repairs. This detour will last through end of day Friday, May 10.

Nighttime paving for S Columbian Way and S Alaska St is scheduled to begin as early as Monday, May 13. Paving was delayed due to the need for additional base repair work. We appreciate your patience.
