Point Defiance Roundabout
Metro Parks is working with the City of Tacoma and State Department of Transportation to smooth traffic flow at the park’s Pearl Street entrance by introducing a roundabout.
We had originally anticipated construction of the roundabout to begin in late summer of 2017, with a pause during Zoolights and final work finished in spring. Unexpected construction delays will push the start of construction to January 2018, right after Zoolights. Completion is still anticipated for spring 2018 ahead of the Pacific Seas Aquarium grand opening.
