Toyota of Olympia and the City of Tumwater
SCJ worked with Toyota of Olympia and the City of Tumwater to create a new 27-acre Toyota dealership south of the Home Depot in Tumwater. The project included extending Tyee Drive from Home Depot to Israel Road and adding a roundabout at the new intersection. The changes will not only create access to the dealership, but will also help alleviate traffic on nearby Trosper and Littlerock roads.
The complete plan involves a full commercial phase, improvements to Israel Road between Littlerock Road and Interstate 5, and low impact stormwater solutions including rain gardens and an underground filtration system. To create a buffer between residential neighborhoods and the development, a new pedestrian trail with planting buffers is planned around the perimeter of the site.
“This project has been a seamless partnership between the City, the developer, and SCJ. Within our multi-discipline firm, it’s been fun to have environmentalists, permit specialists, planners, and civil site development engineers all working together under one roof.”
