Construction on Mottman Road SW will delay traffic in December

Construction began Wednesday on Mottman Road Southwest in Tumwater, and drivers should expect lane closures from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the next two to three weeks.

A contractor for Puget Sound Energy is installing a new gas main on the north side of Mottman Road, and construction will move west toward Crosby Boulevard Southwest, according to a news release from the city. Construction will take place on the road’s shoulder and will cause some traffic disruptions in both directions. Flaggers will help direct drivers through the work zone, the city reports.
