Paving of SR 530 Intersection with SR 9 Scheduled for Next Week

WSDOT contractors will be paving the SR 530 intersection with Highway 9 to the first roundabout on Division Street overnight on Wednesday, August 8th. The roadway was milled by crews from Reece Construction on Thursday, August 2 in preparation for the new surface.

Although the work will be done at night, there may still be delays through the construction area.  Avoid the area if at all possible. If you must travel through the repaving area, please follow the detours and pack your patience.

Reece Construction paves Division Street in July
