Port of Tacoma Road Update - September 2 to 13

Safety is our top priority. The contractor, City, Tacoma Rail, and Port are working with emergency responders to make sure they have access through the construction zone.

Remember, the speed limit through the construction zone is 30 mph to protect both construction workers and people who work at and travel to the Port.
