Construction on Rd 68; traffic will be affected

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- The City of Pasco is widening Road 68 and modifying the turn lanes from Burden Blvd. heading southbound onto Road 68.

The construction will take place from May 5th through June 23rd. Drivers can expect delays and lane restrictions weekdays from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Southbound lanes will be restricted during the day to one lane.

The $310,000 project will widen three traffic lanes and also revise signal pole placement. These traffic revisions are designed to provide safer and better traffic flow at one of Pasco's busiest thorough fares.

Drivers are asked to find alternative routes of travel to avoid delays and help the widening project stay on deadline.
