WEEKLY UPDATE

The following roads will be impacted by this work during the week of July 16:

Since school is now out for the summer, contractors working at the new schools,the new Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex and nearby are moving quickly to complete work before school begins again in the fall.     

  • Hillhurst Road from the High School to NW 229th Street– Flagging will be ongoing, expect delays.  Frontage improvements for the outdoor recreation complex, the schools, and the new subdivision, as well as associated utility improvements will be underway this week.
  • Royle Road from the pump station to the intersection with Hillhurst– flagging will be in place as to conduct utility improvements.

Construction in other areas is continuing and is expected to have traffic impacts similar to previous weeks:

So. Hillhurst Road, So. Sevier Road and So. Nighthawk Road – shoulder work only. This work is being completed in conjunction with the Taverner Ridge Phase 10 & 11 project, and will complete frontage improvements on both Hillhurst and Sevier. The existing narrow width of Sevier may cause traffic delays, but after completion Sevier will be a full width road with sidewalks and planter strips on both sides.

NW 229th – Shoulder Work. Paving was completed as part of the future Kennedy Farms subdivision. This week work will be confined to the shoulders and no flagging is anticipated. When the work is complete, the road will be newly paved, with sidewalks, street lights, and street trees.

New Construction Area:

Main Avenue from Depot Street to the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge – Intermittent lane closures with flagging will begin July 23.  This is utility work in preparation for the upcoming Main Avenue Access Improvements project.  The project will complete a pedestrian path to the Refuge and replace the existing bridge and culvert over Gee Creek. The bridge replacement will address periodic flooding on the road and remove an existing barrier to fish passage.  The full project is expected to begin construction in early spring of 2019.

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.
