Gas Main Construction at 236th & 56th

Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) gas main upgrade along 236th Street SW from I-5 to 56th Avenue W has progressed into the 236th Street SW/56th Avenue West intersection.

Construction in and near the intersection is expected to occur over the next three weeks beginning Thursday, March 8. During this time, roadway lanes will shift and may be reduced to one travel lane with flaggers and the intersection controlled by police. This may cause delays. Alternate routes are strongly recommended and detours may occur.

PSE’s work is scheduled in anticipation of the city’s “Main Street” Reconstruction project. PSE’s upgrading of their gas main will reduce the likelihood that later utility work will cut and patch the reconstructed 236th Street SW surface.
