Traffic Avenue/SR 410 Interchange

Construction is now underway, which means traffic will get worse in the short-term in order to get better in the long-term. Follow this page and perhaps select to receive weekly email updates from us to help you navigate through construction.

Upcoming Traffic Effects:

  • There's no parking along the shoulder of Traffic Avenue northbound from the City limits to the overpass. This affects Sound Transit commuters. This parking option will not return as that shoulder will become a travel lane.
  • Traffic Avenue Overpass will be closed in both directions on weeknights September 18-September 24, 8 pm to 4 am. It will remain open on Saturday and Sunday evenings. You will still have access eastbound SR 410 to Puyallup's East Main & East Main to eastbound SR 410 as well as access to westbound SR 410/SR 167 from Thompson Street or Traffic Avenue southbound. See map below.
  • Traffic Avenue Overpass will have a single lane closure on weeknights September 25-October 4, 8 pm to 4 am. One lane will remain open across the bridge with flaggers directing traffic.
  • SR 410 in both directions will have single lane closures under the Traffic Avenue overpass September 16 through 20, 8 pm to 4 am. Expect congestion.

Q&A

  • The arrows for "To Tacoma/Seattle" and "To Bonney Lake" seem to be in the wrong place.

    LesleyP26 asked 9 days ago

    The City will inspect the detour signs and correct them if they have been installed incorrectly. Thank you for the heads up!

  • Where will sound transit commuters park once the project is complete, since the City of Sumner is no longer allowing them to park on streets near the station?

    lacey07 asked 6 days ago

    Yes, we realize it's getting really, really tough and trying to balance commuter parking (i.e. down Academy Street) with residents needing access during the day and businesses needing parking is no picnic. We're talking to Sound Transit to try to find some other options for commuters. Any suggestions? 

  • We need a Photo-enforced traffic camera on these intersections... trucks are running red lights at full speed... We need an ordinance that prohibits "Intersection blocking"... cars are crowding the intersections and stopping traffic from moving...

    jak_raft asked 3 days ago

    With this project there will be a new layout and traffic signal design at each of the intersections at either end of the Traffic Avenue Bridge. These instances of "intersection blocking" should be solved once the project is complete.

  • Now that a contractor has been selected, when is construction expected to begin?

    Sorry just saw this! I am working out the kinks of this new website! Construction officially started on September 9th, 2019!
