Tumwater: Intermittent Lane Closures On Old Highway 99 From Oct 27 Thru Nov 3

Due to utility work, the southbound right turn lane at the intersection of Old Highway 99 and Henderson Boulevard SE will be closed intermittently from October 27 thru November 3, 2015, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

South Bay Excavating will be exposing a buried manhole in the southbound right turn lane of Old Highway 99 at Henderson Boulevard. Once the manhole is exposed, they will install fiber conduit in the southbound shoulder, heading north along Old Highway 99 to connect to existing private fiber conduit. Flaggers and traffic control will be on site to assist drivers through the work zone.
