Monday morning. Contractor crews continue their work to upgrade

travel plans take you down into Pierce County and across the narrows,

Sept. 9, until 5 am
directions of SR 16 across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge will be reduced to
lanes for paving work.
Some ramps in the area will also
be closed. If it’s a rainy weekend, this work could be rescheduled.
