From the City of Auburn:
On April 23, 2018, construction work will begin on the Auburn Way South Paving Project that will replace the roadway surface on Auburn Way South from SR-18 to 17th Street SE. The project will also upgrade curb ramps and traffic signals to improve accessibility. This project is being implemented by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) with participation by the City of Auburn. The construction work is anticipated to be complete by September 1st, 2018, however, the duration is dependent on weather conditions.
The first phases of work will construct sidewalk and signal improvements and will be completed during daytime hours, typically between the hours of 8 AM and 3 PM. Paving and other work that requires more extensive traffic impacts will occur during nighttime hours. Additional traffic notices will be made as the construction progresses.
