VANCOUVER – People who use Padden Parkway (State Route 500) between Northeast 117th Avenue (SR 503) and Northeast 162nd Avenue should expect delays during paving work this summer.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 7, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will intermittently close lanes in both directions of Padden Parkway for resurfacing work.

“Construction will affect each person differently, depending on their destination,” said WSDOT project engineer Lori Figone. “The end result will be a smoother ride and a road that’ll hold up to our harsh winters for the next several years.”

Later this summer, the westbound lanes of Padden Parkway between Northeast 117th Avenue and Northeast 162nd Avenue will close over a weekend. The eastbound lanes will close the following weekend. WSDOT’s contractor, Granite Construction, Inc., will schedule this work in the next several weeks. Those who use Padden Parkway can sign up to receive the latest project and closure updates via email.

The work is weather dependent and may need to be rescheduled due to rain. Construction of the $2.9 million project is scheduled to wrap up this fall.
