Work scheduled for three consecutive nights starting at 8 p.m. Monday in Salmon Creek.
Three nights of road repairs and paving are scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 17, on a half-mile section of NE 134th Street-Tenney Road.
Granite Construction, a contractor working for Clark County Public Works, will make pavement repairs, grind out existing asphalt and repave the road from just south of the NE Tenney Road-139th Street intersection to just west of Interstate 5.
The first night of work will begin at 8 p.m. Monday and conclude by 6 a.m. Tuesday to avoid major conflicts with the morning rush hour. Additional 10-hour construction periods will begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.
Weather and other factors can affect construction schedules. Check roadside message boards and the county website www.clark.wa.gov/publicworks for schedule updates.
The work will require closing lanes on this section of NE 134th Street-Tenney Road. Flaggers and temporary signs will direct drivers to alternate routes. A map showing these routes is on the county website.
Access to businesses will remain open but may be restricted at times to alternate routes, such as NE 139th Street and NE 10th Avenue for the Fred Meyer shopping complex and NE 12th Avenue for businesses along the south side of NE 134th Street west of I-5.
Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead if they need to drive in the area at night and to use the NE 139th Street exit from northbound I-5.
Clark County has distributed fliers to area businesses alerting them to the upcoming road work. The county also has coordinated with emergency responders, particularly Fire District 6 because Station 63, 1200 N.E. 134th St., is in the construction zone.
