Projects are part of the ongoing improvement on Northeast 10th Avenue
VANCOUVER — Area residents can learn more about current construction on Northeast 10th Avenue, west of Interstate 5, and a future project on the same corridor during an open house later this month.
An ongoing project is improving and connecting Northeast 10th Avenue, from Northeast 154th Street to Northeast 164th Street, which includes building a 450-foot-long bridge over Whipple Creek.
Clark County Public Works’ contractor has finished pouring the road deck for the two-lane bridge. A subcontractor is improving Northeast 10th Avenue on both sides of the bridge to one travel lane in each direction, along with a center turn lane, bicycle lanes, sidewalks and facilities to collect and treat polluted storm runoff. The bridge and improved roadway are scheduled to open in fall 2018.
Public Works is designing a second project to improve Northeast 10th Avenue, from Northeast 149th Street to Northeast 154th Street. Construction on this project is scheduled to begin in 2020.
Public Works will host an open house on both projects from 4-7 p.m. Tue., June 19, in the commons area at Skyview High School, 1300 NW 139th St. Residents can stop by anytime during the three-hour event to discuss either project, ask questions and offer comments and suggestions.
More information on the county’s projects to improve the Northeast 10th Avenue corridor is available on the county’s website, www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/ne-10th-avenue.
