Draft parks plan available for public review

The draft Parks, Recreation and Open Space plan is designed to meet future parks needs in unincorporated Clark County.

The Clark County Planning Commission voted 7-0 on Aug. 20 to recommend adoption of the comprehensive parks plan. The Board of County Councilors will consider adopting the plan following a public hearing at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, on the sixth floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St.

NE 119th Street opens to through traffic following culvert replacement

After a five-week closure to replace the Curtin Creek culvert, NE 119th Street reopened to through traffic on Aug. 10.

A short section of NE 119th Street, about a half mile east of NE 72nd Avenue, was closed for the culvert work on July 7.

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.

County to upgrade or replace five bridges

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, is the last wood support bridge in the county’s inventory of 78 bridges.

The bridge will cost an estimated $2.28 million to replace, with federal funds covering 80 percent of the cost. The project is scheduled for construction in summer 2015.

The county started design work in 2013 and intends to complete all five projects by the end of 2015. Permitting, environmental protections and other factors can affect construction schedules. More information >
