Construction work on Nisqually to Paradise Road, Phase I consists of the rehabilitation of 6.5 miles of Paradise Road E and additional work on Ricksecker Point Loop Road and Paradise Valley Road in Mount Rainier National Park. Work on Paradise Road E will begin at the Nisqually Entrance Station and proceed east to Longmire. The roadway alignment will essentially match the existing alignment with 11 foot lanes and 1 foot paved shoulders, and the roadway profile grade and cross section will also generally fit within the existing bench width. The rehabilitation will consist of subgrade repair, mechanically stabilized earth walls (MSE walls), subexcavation and deep patches, conduit installation, culvert replacement, guardwall reconstruction, and bridge and pavement restoration. Additional rehabilitation work will include the Kautz Creek parking area, and slope stabilization in the vicinity of Kautz Creek and the Kautz Creek Service Area road, and the restoration of Tahoma Creek Bridge and Kautz Creek Bridge.
The project is located on Paradise Road.
