Section of NE 119th Street to close for culvert replacement on July 7
Rotschy Inc., a Clark County-based contractor, is continuing work on a $19.3 million project to widen and improve NE 119th Street, along with smaller improvements to NE 72nd and 87th avenues.
This project also will replace the Curtin Creek culvert under NE 119th Street, about a half mile east of NE 72nd Avenue. This work will require closing NE 119th Street at Curtin Creek to through traffic.
This closure is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 7, and could last until late August. During culvert replacement, through traffic will need to use alternate routes, such as Padden Parkway to the south and NE 139th Street to the north.
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 >
