City Of Gig Harbor - Donkey Creek Tree Cutting Project

TEMPORARY STREET CLOSURE – AUSTIN STREET

TUESDAY, JUNE 21 & WED., JUNE 22 - FROM 8AM TO 2PM

Traffic Impact Notice

On June 21st and 22nd, Austin Street will be closed and a detour will be implemented. The roadway will be closed from Harborview Drive to North Harborview Drive, along the Donkey Creek Corridor. The detour will be in place from 8AM to 2PM each day. Some minor traffic control may exist after 2PM, but the road closure will not be in place outside of this time frame. (This work is weather-dependent, so there is a possibility of the detour having to be re-scheduled.)

The purpose of the work is to fall several trees in this corridor that have been deemed hazardous. During these days of work, no parking will be available on Austin Street and no pedestrian access will be allowed through this area. Some portions of Donkey Creek Park may also be closed for safety reasons.

Variable Message Sign Boards will be put up at each end of the work area prior to the work days. There will also be adequate detour signage to help drivers navigate around the work zone.
