Motorists Urged to Avoid 64th Avenue and Tieton Drive on Thursday

Paving work, in connection with a traffic signal improvement project at the intersection of 64th Avenue and Tieton Drive, is expected to result in significant delays for drivers along Tieton Drive on Thursday, May 26th.

While the project is underway, traffic on Tieton Drive will be reduced to a single lane for all traffic between 63rd Avenue and 67th Avenue between 6:00 AM and Noon.  Flaggers will be in place to control access to the shared lane.

In the early afternoon, another lane of traffic should be available, thus allowing Eastbound and Westbound traffic to each have a travel lane.

During the paving work, 64th Avenue will also be closed to thru traffic and access to the Westwood West golf course will be from Nob Hill Boulevard only.

Crews expect to complete paving activities by 4:00 PM on Thursday afternoon.  The entire traffic signal improvement project is slated to be finished in late June.

As always, the schedule for this type of a project is subject to change dependent on weather, equipment failure, and emergencies.
