WSDOT stripes second left-turn lane from Olympic Drive to SR 16

GIG HARBOR – Washington State Department of Transportation crews are scheduled to restripe an intersection at Olympic Drive and State Route 16 starting at 10 p.m. Monday, July 17. At that time, the Olympic Drive overpass spanning SR 16 will be reduced to one lane in each direction and police will direct traffic through the intersection. Overnight, crews will restripe the intersection to add a second left-turn lane from Olympic Drive to westbound SR 16, and install a new left-turn signal to accommodate the added turn-lane.

Most work is expected to be complete by early morning Tuesday, July 18, however drivers are advised that they may encounter some delays and to plan accordingly. The work is weather-dependent and will be postponed in the event of rain.

The additional left-turn lane will increase left-turning capacity at that location and is being installed at the request of the City of Gig Harbor.
