Pavement repairs in north Clark County
Clark County has completed emergency repairs on two roads following freezing and thawing conditions in early February.
- NE Sunset Falls Road, from NE Dole Valley Road east for approximately 5.5 miles to the Skamania County line.
- NE Berry Road, from NE 240th Avenue northeast for approximately 1 mile to the Yacolt Burn State Forest boundary, west of Kaskillah/Northeast 264th Place.
Damaged pavement sections on both roads have been dug out and filled with gravel. Because of loose gravel, advisory 25 mph speeds have been posted. Weight restrictions on trucks have been lifted for both road sections.
There will be additional repairs this spring and summer.

Pedestrians and drivers are asked to be alert to construction near these existing crosswalk locations.
