Commuters beware: Several road projects in the Olympia area get under way Monday.
And that is before you get on the freeway.
Here are the projects:
▪ Hogum Bay Road Northeast, between Willamette Drive Northeast and 28th Avenue Northeast, will be closed 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, so a stormwater line can be installed. Detour information will be posted on Marvin Road during the closure, according to the city of Lacey.
▪ Drivers on state Route 507 through Yelm can expect backups and delays during the day through July, according to the state Department of Transportation. The work will take place 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through July 31. The project includes sidewalk improvements, stormwater utility work and planing and paving near milepost 28.
▪ Northbound traffic on Fones Road near Sixth Street in Olympia will be delayed so the city can finish work on a water main. Drivers can expect to see flaggers directing traffic on Fones Road. The work begins Monday and continues through the week, according to the city.
