SR 500 - Camas - Paving & sidewalk updates


February 2018 

To preserve the road and improve pedestrian access along SR 500 through Camas in Clark County, WSDOT contractor crews will repair more than two miles of pavement and upgrade pedestrian crossings. 

In partnership with the City of Camas, crews will also reconfigure roadway pavement markings along this stretch of highway. For questions related to this work please contact James E. Carothers, City of Camas Engineering Manager, 360-817-7230. 

Why is WSDOT doing this work?
Repairing potholes, ruts and cracks in the pavement before deeper layers of the road are damaged saves time and money.

Updating pedestrian crossings improves walkability and makes it easier for people to cross the street safely.

The End Result
This project will improve the ride quality of the highway and extend the life of the roadway. It also will reduce the need for emergency closures and costly repairs.
Sidewalk ramps within the project area will be updated to help ensure people of all abilities can safely travel along this stretch of road.

Project Benefits
