City Hall work should slow Olympia traffic

Traffic delays are expected in the coming week as crews do work at the new Olympia City Hall site.

The final asphalt paving on Fourth and Fifth avenues and Cherry Street next to City Hall will begin Monday. Onstreet parking will be unavailable on those streets. Following the paving work, a bike lane will be striped on two blocks of Fourth Avenue from Jefferson Street to Chestnut Street. The width available for the bike lanes results from reducing the three motor vehicle lanes to two.
