This county project will be replacing the third and final culvert that crosses Northeast Manley Road during the second season of this project. This project will also improve the roadway width, install guardrail and other safety improvements, install new signage, and will complete paving on this section of road.

A county project will reconstruct the roadway to include two travel lanes, center left-turn lane, bike lanes, sidewalks, stormwater treatment facilities, a culvert crossing and a traffic signal at the intersection with NE 149th St. Associated utility work will also be completed. The project is scheduled to be completed in June 2022.

Northeast 10th Avenue is closed to through-traffic between the intersections of Northeast149th Street and Northeast 154th Street until June 2022. Adjacent driveways on Northeast 10th Avenue are accessible from the north. The two intersections are open to traffic although subject to temporary, flagger-controlled delays. Drivers are urged to use caution for flaggers and workers on the roadway shoulders.

Pavement Management Program:
The 2021 City of Vancouver’s Pavement Management Program is underway for a busy season of paving and preserving streets. Vancouver’s Pavement Management program begins with preparations such as ADA curb ramp upgrades, tree/vegetation pruning and preliminary pavement crack sealing/repairs. This work usually takes place from March through early July. The Pavement Management work of resurfacing, rehabilitation and pavement preservation typically occur from July through early September. Any striping/pavement markings removed during street work will be reapplied after the surface is ready. Please allow for curing time and weather conditions.

Pavement Management Program: Columbia Street 
Pavement Management work on Columbia Street, from Columbia Way to 45th Street, is underway. Work started with ADA-ramp upgrades, beginning at the south end of the project, near 3rd/4th streets, and proceeding north during April through June. The city's contractor, Granite Inc., of Vancouver, began the actual paving of Columbia Street, from Mill Plain Boulevard to 45th Street, in late June. Project website: www.cityofvancouver.us/ColumbiaStreet

Corridor Improvement Project: Broadway
Construction is underway on Phase 1 of the Broadway Corridor Improvement Project, a major City project to upgrade water and sewer infrastructure and repave the street. Project boundaries are Broadway Street, 13th Street to McLoughlin Boulevard, with a small area west and east on McLoughlin Boulevard. Project completion is currently anticipated about late summer 2021, weather and construction conditions permitting. Click this link for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: Daytime traffic impacts typically take place between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., and nighttime impacts are between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Times may vary based on weather and other (construction-related) variables

I-5 – northbound between 19.36 and 20.0 – on the Lewis River Bridge

Freight travelers who use northbound Interstate 5 will temporarily shift to use the center lane along the northbound span of the Lewis River Bridge about two miles south of Woodland. Shifting large truck traffic to use the center lane of northbound I-5 helps prevent further damage to the bridge deck and extends the usable life of temporary repairs until more permanent repairs can be scheduled when warmer weather returns.

SR 503 – Yale Bridge

Beginning daily at 8 a.m. through 3:30 p.m., crews will intermittently close the SR 503 Yale Bridge for bridge deck repair work. Travelers on both directions of SR 503 should plan for delays of up to 30 minutes on the following scheduled days:

  • Monday, July 19 through Tuesday, July 20

 

The Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will begin work to repave sections of northbound I-5 and several on- and off-ramps along area highways, to preserve and extend the useful life of the roadway.     

Overnight ramp closures
Crews will close the following ramps overnight from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.:

  • Sunday, July 25 and Monday, July 26: The eastbound and westbound SR 500 off-ramps to St. Johns Boulevard. 
  • Tuesday, July 27 and Wednesday, July 28: The St. Johns Boulevard on-ramp to westbound SR 500 and the westbound SR 500 off-ramp to Northeast 15th Street.
  • Thursday, July 29: The Northeast 15th Street on-ramp to eastbound SR 500.
  • Friday, July 30: The St. Johns Boulevard on-ramp to eastbound SR 500.

Daytime ramp closures

  • Monday, July 26: The eastbound SR 14 off-ramp to Evergreen Boulevard will close from 4 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday, July 27: The off-ramps from both directions of SR 14 to Evergreen Boulevard will close from 4 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday, July 27: The eastbound SR 500 off-ramp to Falk Road will close from 4 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During the ramp closures travelers will need to use an alternate route. As with any highway construction project, travelers must exercise caution in the work zone, and reduce speed to ensure your safety and the safety of highway workers. It’s also the law. Traffic fines are doubled in construction zones. Following warning signs and highway worker instructions benefits all those who share the roadway.
