News Release
City of Vancouver project will improve the way for pedestrians on Fort Vancouver Way - 12/06/18

Construction is expected to get underway this week on pedestrian enhancements along Fort Vancouver Way, near Clark College.

This City of Vancouver project involves constructing about 1,000 feet of infill sidewalk along the east side of Fort Vancouver Way, north of McLoughlin Boulevard, and upgrading the pedestrian crosswalk lighting there. When completed, the upgraded crosswalk signal will have the same pedestrian hybrid beacon system already in place at another crosswalk on Fort Vancouver Way a short distance to the north. As part of the project, a short retaining wall will be constructed, and new trees will be planted to replace some existing trees that must be removed to allow for the new pedestrian improvements. 

In general, construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, work may continue as late as 8 p.m. and could take place on weekends, if needed.

The work is being coordinated with C-TRAN and Clark College. Due to temporary impacts to parking in the construction zone, timing of the work aims to coincide with Clark College schedules and coming winter break. Weather permitting, construction is expected to be completed by late January 2019, with the exception of the pedestrian crosswalk upgrade, which will be fully completed when new poles and signal cabinet have been received and installed.

Drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists are reminded to use caution and be alert in construction zones, watching for flaggers, crews and equipment. Please be prepared for lane changes, parking restrictions, transit stop changes, and traffic delays, where needed throughout the project.
