Western Gateway Project to Begin August 9

Home News List Western Gateway Project to Begin August 9

The City of Shelton's Western Gateway project, located on West Railroad Avenue from Pacific Court through 8th Street, is set to begin on Tuesday, August 9.

This is a major project for the City and we'll be sharing project updates on our social media profiles (Facebook and Twitter) and on our project webpage - sheltonwa.gov/westerngateway. We've also added a direct link to the project webpage on the menu for the City's app

The project contractor is set to begin with underground utility installations, which include installing a new water main, water service improvements, and storm drain improvements. Road improvements will begin after utility trenching is complete.

Traffic impacts will be a primary focus of our Western Gateway communications efforts. For now, expect delays if traveling through the project area as traffic will be reduced to one lane. Working hours will typically be 8-hour windows between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. 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. You can expect further updates as this project begins next week.
