The Southeast Blair Road project improves safety and mobility on this heavily traveled corridor. Southeast Blair Road is classified as a two-lane major rural collector and is a main east/west travel route between the cities of Vancouver and Washougal along the Little Washougal River. The project will overlay the 11-foot travel lanes and one-foot shoulders, replace existing, and install new guardrail in spot locations, modify super elevations along a horizontal curve, and construct spot-safety improvements. The project length is approximately 1.44 miles, from Mile Post, or MP, 2.47 to MP 3.91 (Southeast Washougal River Road) (see below).
Construction is expected to begin 2024. At this time, we are still in the preliminary stages of design. Once we are closer to completing the final design, an update will be mailed with more details.
Construction is anticipated to cost $1,565,000. A Federal Transportation Urban Large grant awarded by the Regional Transportation Council will pay for a portion of the costs. A state grant from the Transportation Improvement Board, along with Traffic Impact Fees and the County Road Fund will fund the remaining portion of the costs.
Fed Grant (TAP-UL): $680,000
State Grant (TIB/SP): $300,000
