Residents will learn about the project’s design, environmental impacts and construction timeline from county staff and project consultants
VANCOUVER – Neighbors and community members are invited to learn about upcoming sidewalk and roadway safety improvements for Northeast Hazel Dell Avenue. Northeast Hazel Dell Avenue is a two-lane urban arterial roadway used by up to 800 vehicles per hour. In sections where sidewalks are missing pedestrians must walk on rough, uneven terrain on the narrow roadway shoulder.
Schools and public transit facilities in the area create high volumes of pedestrian traffic. Missing sidewalks in an area with high volumes of vehicle and pedestrian traffic creates significant safety concerns for all users. Clark County Public Works will address these issues through sidewalk and roadway safety improvements.
Public Works staff will host a virtual open house from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Wed., March 9, via WebEx. Residents will learn about the project’s design, environmental impacts and construction timeline from county staff and project consultants. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer comments.
