Northeast 68th Street in Hazel Dell closed beginning June 24

The project’s goal is to make the area safer for pedestrians by adding sidewalks and marked pedestrian crossings

VANCOUVER – Northeast 68th Street between Northeast 10th and Northeast 14th avenues will be closed to through traffic beginning June 24 for construction associated with the Northeast 68th Street Sidewalk Project. The project’s goal is to make the area safer for pedestrians by adding sidewalks and marked pedestrian crossings. Northeast 68th Street between Highway 99 and Northeast St. Johns Road serves a densely populated residential neighborhood with an average daily traffic of 3,288 vehicles. It currently has few sidewalks. 

The closure is scheduled for 45 working days, starting June 24. Construction is weather dependent, and closure start and end dates are subject to change. Updates to the closure schedule will be posted on the project webpage. 

During the closure, local access will be accommodated for residents within the closure area and for emergency vehicles. 

Travelers should choose an alternate route during the closure and follow posted detour signage. The detour will take travelers onto Northeast 79th Street and Northeast St. Johns Road on the north side of the project area, or Northeast 17th Avenue and Northeast Minnehaha Street on the south side of the project area. 

More information about the project, a detour map and project updates are available at
