Northeast Manley Road is a rural road northwest of Battle Ground used by about 1,800 vehicles a day. The road is a bus route for Battle Ground Public Schools.
The current road has two narrow 11-foot travel lanes, with minimal or no shoulders, and drainage ditches on each side. There are several hills and substandard curves with restricted sight distance.
Three undersized culverts carry Daybreak Creek under Northeast Manley Road. Portions of the culverts are in poor condition and clogged with debris, which causes water backups and isolated flooding during heavy rainfall. The culverts are at the end of their useful life and need to be replaced.
Clark County intends to improve safety on Northeast Manley Road, with construction scheduled to begin in 2020.
Northeast Manley Road, from Northeast 82nd Avenue to Northeast 244th Street.
Capital Road Project
- Replace three undersized culverts to improve fish passage and allow debris to flow through the structures.
- Add rock for bank stability, along with other stream restoration work.
- Shave down hills, realign or widen road sections, excavate embankments and clear vegetation to improve sight distance and driver safety.
- Remove trees and other items that present hazards for vehicles running off the road.
- Repave this section of Northeast Manley Road with a fresh layer of hot mix asphalt.
- Replace and extend guardrail as needed.

Construction is expected to begin in spring 2020 and take two construction seasons, with project competition in fall 2021.
Northeast Manley Road will be closed during construction, although access will be maintained for residents living along the road. Through traffic will need to use alternate routes. Northeast Manley Road will be open to all traffic between construction seasons.
Construction is expected to cost about $3.5 million. A $1.85 million state Rural Arterial Trust Account grant, administered through the County Road Administration Board, will cover about 53 percent of estimated construction costs.
