Overnight closures on state Route 16 this week
Construction crews will close part of eastbound state Route 16 in Tacoma for two nights this week so they can restripe the freeway and create an extra lane.
The work will close the highway overnight on Tuesday (Sept. 2) and Wednesday (Sept. 3) between Union Street and Interstate 5. The closures will begin at 11 p.m. and end at 4 a.m.
When the work is completed Thursday morning, a third lane of traffic will be open on eastbound state Route 16, transportation officials said.
