The asphalt pavement on this section of SR 14 was deteriorating due to age and normal wear. The increased use of tire chains, snow plows and trucks during the winter of 2009 caused several ruts and cracks in the pavement.
This project paved SR 14 in both directions between I-5 and the SE 164th Avenue interchange (mile posts 0 to 8.52) in Vancouver to preserve and extend the life of the roadway. Several SR 14 on- and off-ramps were also repaired and preserved.
In addition, this project made safety improvements along the SR 14 corridor such as signing and guardrail upgrades. These combined improvements provide motorists with a smoother and safer ride on the highway.
Drivers have a safer, smoother driving surface and the roadway will last longer. The project also strengthened the road surface to handle heavier traffic.
Motorist safety and drivability were enhanced due to a smoother road surface.
| Economic Incentive
The new surface will require less repair work and reduce maintenance costs.
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.
