Take advantage of free leaf disposal coupons

Clark County and the City of Vancouver are providing residents with coupons to drop off up to 5 cubic yards of leaves at no charge through Dec. 31 at four locations.

Clark County reminds residents not to blow, rake or sweep leaves onto streets, where they can block storm drains, cause flooding and create driving hazards.

To help prevent flooding, residents can clear clogged storm drains by standing in a safe place and using a rake or other garden tool to pull leaves from the path of flowing water.

Residents should not try to clear storm drains on busy streets. Call Clark County Public Works at (360) 397-2446 to report clogged storm drains or flooding outside of city limits

Construction continues on NE 119th Street following culvert replacement

A short section of NE 119th Street, about a half mile east of NE 72nd Avenue, was closed for about five weeks last summer to replace the Curtin Creek culvert.

Significant construction will continue along the corridor, particularly near NE 72nd Avenue. Drivers should expect delays in the corridor and may want to use alternate routes, such as Padden Parkway to the south and NE 139th Street to the north.

A reduced speed limit of 25 mph will remain in effect on NE 119th Street between NE 72nd Avenue and NE 87th Avenue. Please remember that fines are double for speeding and other infractions in a construction zone.

Clark County will maintain access to all businesses during construction.

Federal funds to help with bridge upgrades

Clark County will receive $4.1 million in federal funds to replace one bridge and upgrade four other crossings to withstand earthquakes.

Fifth Plain Creek Bridge, on Northeast 88th Street about a half mile east of Northeast Ward Road, was demolished during summer 2015. It was the last wood support bridge in the county’s inventory of 76 bridges and the only county-owned bridge classified as "structurally deficient."
