Beginning Tuesday morning, road construction will reduce Lakewood Drive between Flett Creek and 74th Street to one lane in each direction, the City of Lakewood recently announced. Speed limits will also be reduced from 40 miles per hour to 20.

The project’s contractor, Tucci & Sons, will be making improvements including repaving and installation of curbs, gutters, and sidewalks on both sides of the major roadway.

Alternative routes can be accessed via Bridgeport Way and South Tacoma Way. Traffic congestion is expected.

According to a statement released by the city, the work is expected to be finished by November.
