Road construction, especially paving, is weather dependent and often delayed by inclement weather.  Please keep in mind that the schedules provided are the most current available, but are subject to weather delays.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to complete various road projects before winter weather begins in earnest. 

S 11th St – Single lane closure with flagging on Tuesday, March 2nd. 

S 5th St and S 65th Ave – One way traffic control with flaggers at the intersection of S 5th Street and S 65th Avenue. Expect delays 7AM-6PM 2/22/21-3/19/2021, Monday-Friday. This work is to install sanitary sewer associated with the Ridgefield Crossing Project.

Pioneer St – Road construction on Pioneer Street for frontage improvements between the 35th and Royle Road roundabouts is ongoing.

Intermittent flagging may occur as the contractors do final striping, electrical, sidewalks, and landscape work. 

When finished, this section of Pioneer Street will have 4 travel lanes, a signalized pedestrian crossing, sidewalks, landscaping, and streetlights on both sides. 

Mill Street RR Crossing – The Mill Street Railroad Crossing is closed permanently.
A detour route to the waterfront and boat ramp is available using the Division Street Railroad Crossing. This closure is part of the Pioneer Street Rail Overpass project.

The Pioneer Street Rail Overpass, when completed, will provide safe access to and from the waterfront for motorists and pedestrians. Upon completion of the Pioneer Rail Overpass, the two existing rail crossings in Ridgefield – one at Division Street and the other at Mill Street – will be closed. The result will be safer passage because vehicles and pedestrians will not be crossing directly on train tracts, and, as a result, trains will not need to blow their whistle as they pass through. 

This is the most current information available to City staff at this time. Construction schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions, supply availability, unexpected conditions and other factors that may impact the work underway.

The City’s first priority is safety! So, please use additional caution anywhere work is underway, be considerate of flaggers and workers, and report any safety concerns through the City’s app “AccessRidgefield” or by contacting the Public Works Department at 360-887-8251.
