Carpenter Road to open next week

February 2nd, 2012 by Ken

Carpenter Road should be opened to two-way traffic by the middle of next week.

That’s the assessment of Lacey’s Director of Public Works Scott Egger. “The recent good weather has allowed the contractor to lay down asphalt and that should continue through the weekend,” he said. “We hope to be open by Wednesday, if the weather holds.”

Egger said there would still be some traffic control needed but drivers would be able to get through.

The Carpenter Road project widens the street to four lanes, with a median and bike lanes. Cost of construction was just a little over $7 million. Right-of-way and design work adds to the cost.
