    • Construction will take place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
    • The intersection will remain closed overnight and on weekends.
    • Drivers headed north on 30th Avenue S will be detoured around the closure by heading south on 30th Avenue South, west on South 240th Street, then north on SR 99 to Kent/Des Moines Road.
    • This work is weather dependent. All project construction work is done under stringent COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
