SR 500 - St. Johns Blvd Interchange - Completed November 2013

This project replaced the signalized intersection at State Route 500 and St. Johns Boulevard in Vancouver with a freeway-style interchange. Crews raised the St. Johns roadway by 25 feet, built a new bridge to take traffic up and over SR 500, and connected SR 500 to St. Johns with interchange ramps.

How You Benefit
Cross GlyphImproves Safety
  • Safety: Collisions caused by vehicles changing lanes and merging at the current intersection will be reduced, including rear-end type collisions that occur at the current signalized intersection.
  • Partnerships & Cooperation
    At WSDOT we seek to address the concerns of the tribal nations using the process outlined in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the WSDOT Tribal Consultation Policy adopted in 2003 by the Transportation Commission as part of the WSDOT Centennial Accord Plan. This project did not impact any tribal resources since the work was entirely above ground on existing WSDOT right of way. For more information visit our WSDOT Tribal Liaison website.

    WSDOT makes every effort to assess and minimize environmental impacts from our projects. A detailed analysis of the project’s environmental impacts was completed as part of the environmental documentation and environmental permitting processes.
