Nighttime drivers on Tacomas Pacific Avenue will encounter delays this week as crews begin paving and striping as part of a larger streetscape project.
The work will be done from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. between South 15th and South 9th streets. Police officers will be at intersections to direct traffic.
Improvements to Pacific Avenue include upgraded sidewalks, new curbs, new pedestrian ramps, landscaping, lighting, rain gardens and art.
Paving on other parts of Pacific Avenue are scheduled for November.
