Unless you’re a professional athlete, you’re probably going to work for the next 40 years. So, what should your first steps as a “grown-up” be? Here are four easy money moves you should make as soon as you start working full-time…Look way ahead: You may be in your early 20s now, but at some point, you’re going to blink and you’ll be almost 40. You don’t want to have to play catch-up with your retirement savings, so start saving for those days as soon as you can. If your company has a 401k match, take advantage of that free money. If not, seek out a financial advisor and find out what your best options are.Plan for emergencies: You can’t foresee losing your job or your car’s engine dying, but you can expect the need for a wad of cash to come out of nowhere. Having a savings account that’s dedicated to emergencies will prepare you for whatever life throws your way.Get out of debt: If you’ve got student loan debt, pay it off as quick as you can after you’re done with school. Before you decide to get a new ride or buy your first house, use that money to knock your debt down to zero. Once you’re debt free, you can start making decisions about those larger purchases.Find a side hustle: Another way to be prepared for those money emergencies is to find another source of income. Whether that’s working a weekend job or selling stuff on the internet, having a second source of income will come in handy if something happens to the first one.last_img read more

Tumwater Roadwork: Desoto Street Stabilization and Rehabilitation Project

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by City of TumwaterConstruction is scheduled to begin on the Desoto Street Stabilization and Rehabilitation Project. Desoto Street will be closed between 2nd Avenue SW and Emerson Street SW for the duration of project, and a detour route will be in place. I-5 ramps will remain open during construction. The road closure is expected to last from August 6 to November 2, 2018, depending on the weather.Local streets within the proximity of the project are expected to receive more traffic volume than normal due to the detour. Electronic message boards and detour signs are installed along the detour route. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes to bypass the area.This project will completely reconstruct Desoto Street SW and 4th Avenue SW from 2nd Avenue SW to Emerson Street SW. Work includes replacement of the existing road base and surface, sidewalks, curb ramps, curb and gutter, a retaining wall, water line, storm and sanitary sewer infrastructure, and underground conversion of the overhead utilities except for the power transmission lines. The project will include construction of new features, such as slope stabilization, an uphill bike lane, fencing along the sidewalk (due to the steep drop near the canyon), architectural street lighting, and storm water treatment. The full road closure is necessary due to deep soil stabilization and deep utility work on this narrow road.This project is funded by a Surface Transportation Program Grant from the Washington State Department of Transportation.Sign up for “Construction & Traffic Alerts” to receive email updates about traffic impacts and service interruptions as the project progresses at www.ci.tumwater.wa.us/e-notifications.last_img read more
