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 56th Pl at Roundabout with Pioneer St – Flagging on the south end of the Pioneer and 56th Pl roundabout for street striping from 10AM to 2:30PM on Friday, January, 28.

S 25th Pl and S 4th Way – Single lane closure with flagging on S 25th Place and S 4th Way Monday, January 31 through Friday, February 4. This is to complete frontage improvements for Ridgefield Heights.

Royle Rd – Intermittent lane closures during work hours on Royle Rd near Wells Dr. Expect short delays. This work is related to the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Royle Rd and Wells Dr.

Pioneer St Rail Overpass – The NEW Pioneer Street Rail Overpass to the Port of Ridgefield is open! The Pioneer Street Rail Overpass provides safe access to and from the waterfront for motorists and pedestrians. Vehicles and pedestrians will no longer be crossing directly on train tracks, like they did on Mill and Division, and once Division is closed, trains will not need to blow their whistle as they pass through. 

NW Smythe Rd N Smythe Road at the intersection of Pioneer St and NW Smythe Road at the intersection of N 32nd Avenue is closed permanently. A new connection is being constructed from Pioneer St to Kemper Grove subdivision and a portion of Smythe will be converted to walking trail.

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.
