Road construction to slow traffic on Padden Parkway
Drivers may experience delays on Padden Parkway beginning the week of January 26 as work to improve Northeast 94th Avenue enters a new phase.
The project includes building acceleration lanes on Padden Parkway to improve safety by giving vehicles entering from Northeast 94th Avenue room to speed up before merging. Deceleration lanes also will be added or improved on Padden Parkway to provide room for vehicles to slow down before turning right onto Northeast 94th Avenue.
Drivers can expect some delays on Padden Parkway from periodic lane closures and other work, but Clark County will work collaboratively with its contractor to minimize disruption, especially during morning and evening rush hour.
About 25,000 vehicles use this section of Padden Parkway on weekdays. Drivers, as always, should use extra caution when passing through a construction zone.
Construction continues on Northeast 119th Street
Significant construction will continue along the Northeast 119th Street corridor, from Northeast 72nd Avenue to Northeast 87th Avenue.
Drivers should expect delays in the corridor and may want to use alternate routes, such as Padden Parkway to the south and Northeast 139th Street to the north.
A reduced speed limit of 25 mph will remain in effect. Please remember that fines are double for speeding and other infractions in a construction zone.
Enjoy your parks during winter
Cold, wet weather is here, but that doesn't mean you can't find some no-cost outdoor recreation within easy walking or driving distance from your home.

New Fifth Plain Creek Bridge opens to traffic
The bridge, on Northeast 88th Street about a half mile east of Northeast Ward Road, opened on January 21. Some final work still needs to be completed, but there should be little effect on traffic.
The previous bridge 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."
In late 2012, Clark County was selected to receive $4.1 million in federal funds to help replace Fifth Plain Creek Bridge and to upgrade four other crossings. For additional information, watch this CVTV video:
More information on county bridges is available in the annual bridge report.
