Western Gateway

Western Gateway closure

Project Overview
Western Gateway will revitalize West Railroad Avenue from Pacific Court at Shelton's city limits through the intersection with 8th Street. Prior to construction, City crews will remove the railroad tracks that cross Railroad Avenue near the 11th Street intersection.

Specific improvements coming as part of this project include:
  • New pavement
  • Storm drain improvements
  • New water main and water services
  • New curb, gutter, and sidewalks
  • New bus pullout with bus shelter
Project Timeline
In 2018, we first applied for grant funding and initiated the design process for Western Gateway. In 2019, we held a design concept public meeting. We have finished the design process and will be going out to bid for Western Gateway soon. Construction is expected to begin spring 2022.Western Gateway timeline

July 26, 2022 Construction is set to begin on this project on Tuesday, August 9, and will begin with underground utility installations (new water main, water services and storm drain improvements). Road improvements will begin after utility trenching is complete. Road improvements will include new roadway, curb and gutters and sidewalk located along Railroad Avenue from Pacific Court to 8th Street.

Traffic: During construction, expect delays as traffic will be reduced to one lane. Heavy congestion is expected while crews and equipment are working. Working hours will typically be 8-hour windows between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please be patient with crews as they work to keep delays to a minimum during this project. Driving lanes will be narrow and heavy equipment/trucks will be entering and leaving work zones. Please be alert and obey flagging personnel for your safety and others! Plan accordingly and use alternate routes when possible.
