A half-mile section of 72nd Street East in the Waller area will be closed this weekend while crews install pipes under the road for a new storm water filter vault.
The vault is intended to catch storm water runoff contaminants from animal waste, vehicle leaks and fertilizers before it reaches Rody Creek.
From 7 a.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday, 72nd Street East between Canyon Road East and 66th Avenue East will be closed.
Drivers will be detoured onto Canyon Road East and Pioneer Way East.
Lane restrictions will continue until April 15, so expect delays, officials said.
On weekdays, two of the four lanes will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Three lanes will be available after that.
The $425,000 project is mostly funded by the state Department of Ecology ($318,715), with $106,250 coming from Pierce County surface water management fees.
