For the next four months, the SR-512 Park & Ride on South Tacoma Way will remain closed while Pierce Transit makes repairs and improvements to lighting, shelters, curbing concrete, and parking surfaces.

Those who usually park at the Lakewood Park & Ride have several alternative options:

  • 140 temporary parking spots will be available at the south end of the Discount World parking lot, located at 11013 Pacific Highway South. On-street bus pickups for many northbound and southbound routes that served the SR-512 Park & Ride will be moved to Pacific Highway South near Discount World.
  • 221 temporary parking spots will be available behind the Barnes and Noble at the Lakewood Towne Center, located at 5711 Main Street Southwest. From there, riders can take Pierce Transit routes 3 and 4 and Sound Transit route 574 from the nearby Lakewood Transit Center. Free connector buses will also run on weekday mornings and evenings during peak commute times to take riders to the Lakewood Sounder Station.
  • Riders can also park at other stations, like the South Tacoma Sounder Station or the Lakewood Sounder Station.
