In order for construction crews to connect the existing Tacoma Link line to the Hilltop Tacoma Link Extension, the T Line will be shut down Aug. 1 to Sept. 16 at the intersection of 9th Avenue and Commerce Street.

Crews will be connecting rails, systems and power, with round-the-clock and nighttime work as part of the construction activity.

Construction work will begin at the end of T Line service on Sunday, July 31. The closure will begin at 5 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 1, and continue until 10 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16. During this time, free shuttle buses will serve all T Line stations between the Tacoma Dome and Theater District.
