Western Gateway Weekly Update 3 - August 25, 2022

Mary Ricker said almost 2 years ago:

Construction is officially underway for the City of Shelton's Western Gateway project. Please share this information with your neighbors and encourage them to sign up to receive email updates.

Upcoming Work and Construction

We hope you enjoyed the YouTube video at the top of this update! Earlier this week, we were able to get some drone footage of the project site. You can see both the crews at work and some great drivers who were able to safely navigate through the work area. For a project like this, a drone is a great way to see the project from a different perspective. We also have some project progress photos to share and you can click here to view those. 

Western Gateway construction began on Tuesday, August 9. Like we've mentioned in past updates, a primary focus for our contractor in these first few weeks of work has been underground utility installations such as the new water main and pipe services (which you can see in the video above). Crews are also installing stormwater services at the new bus shelter, as well as subgrading the bus shelter area.

Next week, crews will be focusing on the installation of pipe services and that work will continue for the next several weeks. Crews will also be installing two fire hydrants between Pacific Court and 12th Street.

What to Expect During Construction

The Shelton School District has their first day of school next week. Shelton Police will be conducting some emphasis patrols along Franklin Street to monitor traffic. 

Continue to 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. on weekdays. 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.

Project Updates

You can follow the City's Facebook or Twitter accounts for updates, and we've also uploaded the video above to our YouTube channel. There is also a project webpage on our City website - sheltonwa.gov/westerngateway. A link to this project webpage has also been added to the homepage of the City's app.

We'll also continue to share weekly updates here, and you can sign up to receive an email notification when a new update is available. If you have any questions or comments about the Western Gateway project or these updates, email Communications Specialist Mary Ricker at [email protected]
