The latest information on roadway construction and other projects that could affect traffic, bus service, and/or daily routines.
A Master Plan has been submitted for a city-owned 10-acre parcel located at 6245 Martin Way East in Lacey, currently used by Lacey Public Works Operations staff and the Lacey Police. A proposed vactor waste facility will be constructed in the southeast corner of the site. The city is providing an opportunity for public comment of the proposed Master Plan until September 5th.
Crews will begin work on a new well to monitor for possible saltwater intrusion beginning July 21, 2014; located in the Beachcrest neighborhood at 5524 Marian Dr NE. The new well will not be for consumption use.
A portion of the work requires the installation of a new steel casing for the well. A geotechnical investigation and slope stability analysis has been done. Drillers will drive the steel casing into the ground approximately 500 feet. Due to this drilling process, construction noise will be heard by adjacent properties and neighborhoods.
Hours of construction will be limited from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. with no scheduled work on weekends or holidays.
Access to properties will not be restricted. Construction of the new monitoring well is expected to be complete by October 2014.

August 22, 2014 Update: Work on private utility undergrounding is ongoing, including utility crossings under the roadway. Work on stormwater conveyance is complete.
Shea Homes has begun construction on the Marvin Road & 41st Avenue NE roundabout. The road improvements will consist of a new roundabout and frontage improvements along Marvin Road NE from 41st Avenue NE to Columbia Way, including a new planted center median, bike lane, and pedestrian pathway.
Throughout construction, at least one lane of traffic will remain open. Traffic delays can be expected when traveling through the construction area. To avoid these delays, the recommended alternate route is to follow 41st Avenue NE as it becomes Willamette Drive to the south, to where it intersects Marvin Road. Regular construction hours are Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., however, construction typically will not continue after 5 p.m. The project is anticipated to be completed by the spring of 2015. As the project progresses, updates will be posted.
