Winter weather delays Tracyton Boulevard opening

This week’s weather caused delays for many schools, businesses, military bases and government offices.

Add the opening of the Tracyton Boulevard Barker Creek project to the list of things impacted by snow and ice. The road was scheduled to open today. The winter blast prevented the contractor from finishing the work needed to open the road. The work includes bringing the road surface up to grade and adjusting guardrails before it can be opened to traffic. When the road opens it will have a gravel surface through the project site until the spring, when weather permits paving. With more winter weather on the way, the contractor, McDonald & Company Inc. of Enumclaw, is making no guarantee as to when the road will open. It may remain closed all of next week.
