Overhaul of Camas’ Brady Road nears completion with paving this week


Road closures will last through the week with delays expected 

CAMAS — The final stages of paving began this week on Brady Road within the city of Camas. Paving will cause traffic slow-downs, and is expected to continue through the week. 

A long time in the making, the update of Brady Road is nearing completion in all areas of construction. A sidewalk, larger median, new landscaping, and of course, repaving are all part of the process that began in September of last year.

From 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. on July 27, the Brady Road and NW 16th Avenue intersection was closed. Single lane traffic directed by flaggers will be in effect all week, and once the intersection is completed, the rest of the road will be paved. 

Residents are encouraged by the city to continue to take an alternate route, similarly to the construction of the roundabouts at Lake Road and Everett Street.

Earlier this year, Camas Mayor Barry McDonnell put a temporary pause on all city projects due to the COVID-19 pandemic; Lake Road and Brady Road being among them. For the last couple months, construction has resumed.

After paving is finished, striping, landscaping, irrigation, fencing, signs, and more miscellaneous items will be completed into the fall, but the road will be fully open by Aug. 28. 

The project is being completed by Rotschy Inc. per approval last year by the Camas city council, and cost about $5.6 million. Stormwater and sewer upgrades, as well as new lighting are also components of the project.
