A new route from Interstate 5 to the south end of the Southcenter district has been opened up just in time for the holiday shopping season.

Southcenter Parkway extension is open

Just in time for Black Friday, the city of Tukwila opened Southcenter Parkway from South 180th Street to South 200th St. on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Shoppers and commuters driving northbound on I-5 can now use the Orillia Road freeway exit to get to Tukwila’s Southcenter district.

“We are very pleased to be able to open this new five-lane arterial road, which will provide much needed access to Tukwila’s Southcenter District and Westfield Southcenter Mall,” stated Mayor Jim Haggerton. “In addition, this new road opens up development for hundreds of acres of land that will help us meet our goals by attracting thousands of new jobs.”

A formal ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in early December, 2012 and the public will be invited. More details are available on the City’s website at:
