News Release
Open house for Northeast 179th Street corridor project, Jan. 27 - 01/20/22

Vancouver, Wash. – Neighbors and community members are invited to learn about design activities associated with the reconstruction of the intersections of Northeast 29th Avenue and Northeast 50th Avenue with Northeast 179th Street, at an upcoming open house. This area is anticipated to experience significant growth over the next 20 years. Upgrades to the intersections will accommodate future traffic volumes while maintaining safety and mobility.

Public Works staff will host a virtual open house at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27, via the WebEx online meeting platform. Residents can attend by entering meeting number: 2488 127 0786 and password: 2950 at WebEx.com. Attendees can also join by calling 1.408.418.9333 and using the same meeting number and password. Attendees will listen to presentations given by the project manager and can pose questions to project staff. 

The meeting will include two presentations: the first, from 5 to 5:55 p.m. is about the intersection of Northeast 179th Street and Northeast 29th Avenue. The second, from 6 to 7 p.m., is about the intersection of Northeast 179th Street and Northeast 50th Avenue. Community members are encouraged to send their questions to the project managers prior to the presentations by emailing eetproject@clark.wa.gov">179thstreetproject@clark.wa.gov. Interpretation is available upon request. 

These projects are part of an effort to improve the local transportation system along the Northeast 179th Street corridor, in support of the Clark County Comprehensive Growth Management Plan. When complete these projects will improve travel times, encourage economic development, improve intersections, upgrade stormwater management systems, and update the corridor to meet current road standards.

More information can be found on the county’s website https://clark.wa.gov/public-works/ne-179th-st-ne-29th-ave. Community members can also find information on the Public Works Twitter, Facebook and Instagram profiles, and on NextDoor.
