Traffic Update – This Week

Pioneer Street, west of 45th roundabout – One lane traffic control through October 26, 2018. Expect delays. This work is to connect sewer to the future multifamily housing.

1st Circle & So. 56th Place – Paving, one lane traffic control on 1st Circle, minor impacts to So. 56th Place. This is reconstruction of the road in conjunction with the Vancouver Clinic construction.

Pioneer Street, adjacent to the former View Ridge Middle School in downtown Ridgefield – Intermittent lane closures/traffic control as work on the school remodel continues.

So. Royle Road from Hillhurst to So. 15th Street – One lane traffic control as NW Natural gas installs gas lines.

Main Avenue from Depot Street to the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge – Intermittent lane closures with flagging.  This is utility work in preparation for the upcoming Main Avenue Access Improvements project.  The project will complete a pedestrian path to the Refuge and replace the existing bridge and culvert over Gee Creek. The bridge replacement will address periodic flooding on the road and remove an existing barrier to fish passage.  The full project is expected to begin construction in early spring of 2019.

So. 15th Street and So. 45th Avenue – Traffic control will be in place as work is completed on So. 15th Street. Frontage improvements are being completed as part of the Cloverhill subdivision. The road is being realigned for improved safety and sight distance and to match the City’s future planned So. 45th improvements, which will include road widening and frontage improvements.
