In summer 2016, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation, resurfaced 11 miles of SR 500, from east Vancouver to Camas.
The asphalt on several portions of SR 500 was showing signs of deterioration. Crews repaired long cracks and removed rutting to provide a better surface with increased traction.
The work extends the life of the road, improves driver safety and reduced the need for maintenance repairs.
Repairing the road surface reduces rutting and cracks, making for a safer and smoother ride.
Creating more friction for vehicle tires improves traction and safety.
| Economic Incentive
Doing the repair work saves money in the long term and helps reduce the need for emergency repairs.
