Sidewalks as well as ADA access are being improved throughout the Capitol Campus. The project also includes new ADA access into and throughout the Sunken Garden. An accessible walking path will be constructed around and through realigned landscape beds, and modifications will be made to the west entrance. The reconfigured sunken garden beds will be planted with a combination of plants from the existing beds and new site appropriate perennials.
The Department of Enterprise Services has contracted with Serpanok Construction of Tacoma to perform the work. Work began in mid-July and is expected to last through August. There will be noise, traffic and pedestrian impacts. Portions of the sidewalks on Capitol Campus will be closed during the work.
Washington Street: Work will continue.
Half of the Capitol Court parking ramp off Washington Street has been demolished. New concrete is being poured Aug. 12. The other half of the ramp will remain open during construction.
Demolition of the second half of the ramp will begin on Aug. 19. The entire ramp is scheduled to reopen Sept. 3. The scheduled reopen date may be adjusted due to weather or unforeseen conditions.
