The Mountain News has just received the following anouncement from the Pierce County Department of Public Works and Utilties.

Show time is dusk, and is free.

Brookdale Road East will be close at 8 p.m. on Friday and reopen Saturday at 6:30 p.m. After reopening, there will continue to be limited turning movements until 9 p.m. on Sunday.
On Sunday, 160th Street East will close from 4:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes to avoid the construction area. Information on this project can be found online at www.piercecountywa.org/crp5656.
