City of Tacoma: Southbound Schuster Parkway closure ahead

Southbound Schuster Parkway will close to vehicular traffic between South 4th Street and Pacific Avenue from Mon., Feb. 10 through Fri., March 21, to allow for stormwater improvements. Northbound lanes will remain unaffected. The improvements are designed to improve storm drainage and prevent flooding on Commerce Street near Spanish Steps. Detour signs will direct southbound traffic from Schuster Parkway to South 4th Street, Dock Street and to downtown or I-705 via the South 15th Street ramp. The Schuster Parkway sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians and users for two to three weeks during the road closure. Signs will notify pedestrians when the sidewalk is closed. The pedestrian detour will be the same as the vehicle detour. More information is available online at
