Important SR167 closure info from WSDOT on August 20-August 23:

Have you heard about the time we closed almost four miles of northbound SR 167 over a weekend and didn't see major travel delays? Me neither. But we want this to become a true story! To make it happen, we need your help.

From 8:30 p.m. Friday, August 20, to 4 a.m. Monday morning, August 23, we are going to close all lanes of northbound SR 167 from the SR 410 interchange in Sumner to 8th Street East in Pacific for work to help build a high occupancy vehicle lane. During the closure, we'll use a mix of city and county streets as a detour. None of them were built to handle the volume of SR 167 and that's where you come in. We'll all have to work together during this closure.

Check out the link for all the info, including detour routes:

Reminder: today is the second of two days of repainting the street striping through the city. The freshly painted stripes look great, so let's keep it that way. Please respect the cones that signal WET PAINT!
