From staff reports

Week of May 21-27:

Starting May 21 and continuing until June 1, Puget Sound Energy, Qwest and Comcast are undergrounding their aerial distribution lines on Pacific Highway from 18th Avenue South to 600 feet north of Dash Point Road.

They will perform the same duties on Dash Point Road to Redondo Way.

PSE and Comcast are scheduled for completion by May 25. Qwest will be working on the west side of the highway, splicing cables in new vaults and removing abandoned vaults under Pacific Highway South between Dash Point Road and South 288th Street, into June.

During the week of May 21, SCI Infrastructure will begin limited excavation on the east side of Pacific Highway South in the 29400 block.

The work will proceed from south to north in preparation for drainage and joint utility trench construction. This work should not disturb existing driveways or parking on adjacent properties.

Also, beginning immediately, SCI will begin preparing the southbound shoulder of Dash Point Road to carry traffic between The View at Redondo apartments, located at 29421 Pacific Highway S., and 18th Avenue South.

Week of May 28-June 3:

Starting May 29, SCI will begin temporary lane striping between The View at Redondo apartments, located at 29421 Pacific Highway S., and 18th Avenue South.

A temporary traffic signal at the intersection of Dash Point Road will also be inserted.

The temporary lane striping and traffic signal will allow for construction of a new retaining wall near the Overlook Condominiums, east of the Dash Point Road and Pacific Highway South intersection, beginning in the month of June.

SCI has announced that drainage construction on the east side of Pacific Highway South in the 2900 block will also begin the week of May 29. This work is expected to cross driveways. However, access to all properties will be maintained during drainage construction.

No work will be performed on Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.
