A new pedestrian bridge over Pacific Avenue in Lacey marks the third and final phase of the Chehalis-Western Trail “Bridging the Gap” project. The future bridge will start at the South Sound Center, cross over the “Kite Girl” statue on Pacific Avenue near the Olympia border and link to the Woodland Trail.

Drivers can expect some travel restrictions from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday as crews will set girders for a pedestrian bridge over Pacific Avenue at South Sound Center.

The most severe restrictions will be between midnight and 4 a.m. when motorists can expect up to a 15 minute delay, according to Thurston County news release. Alternative routes are advised.

The $2.6 million bridge, expected to be complete by the end of the year, is the third and final part of the “Bridging the gap” project.

It will complete the Chehalis-Western Trail and link together the I-5 Bike Trail and Woodland Trail.
