N 1st Circle – Intermittent flagging between the Park & Ride and the Country Cafe on Thursday, July 9th. NW Natural will be completing system improvements. 

S 5th St – One lane closure with flaggers between Union Ridge Parkway and S 65th 7AM-6PM weekdays, Wednesday, July 1 through Friday, July 10. The work is to complete frontage improvements associated with the Ridgefield Crossing development. 

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.

S 3rd Ave and Sargent St – Road closed with local access only. This work is for S 3rd Avenue improvements.  The project is funded through the Community Development Block Grant program and will include:

  • Improved stormwater collection and treatment through curb, gutter, and environmentally friendly rain gardens. 
  • Replacement of undersized water mains installed in 1935. 
  • New pavement on S 3rd Avenue and S Sargent Street, including the addition of paved parking lanes on S 3rd Avenue.
  • Added landscaping including street trees.

**Water, storm, and street improvements are essential and this project is moving forward with social distancing in place.  

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.
