Ramp paving project on I-5 and I-205 begins Monday, March 28
VANCOUVER – Say goodbye to the bumps and hello to smoother on- and off-ramps in Clark County. Starting next week, crews will repave ramps at seven interchanges along Interstate 205 (I-205) and Interstate 5 (I-5).
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will pave, crack-seal and repair potholes on over 40 ramps and install 3,000 linear feet of new guardrail to improve driver safety between the Columbia River and La Center.
Work is scheduled to start Monday, March 28, but is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if it is raining.
Drivers can expect overnight ramp closures between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday for the next three months while crews pave and crack-seal the following interchanges:
- State Route 14 (exit 27)
- Mill Plain Boulevard (exit 28)
- State Route 500 (exit 30)
- NE 83rd Street/Padden Parkway (exit 32)
- NE 134th Street (exit 36)
- NE 179th Street (exit 9)
- NW 319th Street (exit 16)
Crews plan to start work activities at the south end of I-205 and move north toward La Center, but weather conditions could change the schedule. Drivers should watch for advanced warning signs and consider taking alternate routes.
The $2.19 million project was awarded to Wildish Standard Paving Co. in Nov. 2010. The project is scheduled to be complete this summer.
