Tukwila city officials are still trying to determine an opening date for the 1.4-mile extension of Southcenter Parkway between South 180th Street and South 200th Street.
Construction is expected to be done by the end of July on the new five-lane roadway that replaces the old Frager Road.
City officials will host a ribbon-cutting to open the street. No opening date had been agreed upon, although planning for the ceremony is under way, said Bob Giberson, city public works director.
The street extension is part of the city's Tukwila South Development project expected to provide up to 25,000 jobs, 1,700 housing units and 10 million square feet of office and retail space. The Segale family owns most of the property along the new street and plans to develop the area, which will have much-improved access to Interstate 5 with the new roadway.Contact Tukwila Reporter Reporter Steve Hunter at email@example.com or 253-872-6600, ext. 5052.
