SR 500 - SR 503 to NE 4th Plain Blvd - Paving

Status

Aug. 2017

Overview
In summer 2017, contractor crews will resurface Padden Parkway (SR 500) from Northeast 117th Avenue (SR 501) to Northeast 162nd Avenue and then crack seal along Northeast 162nd Avenue to Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard. ADA ramps will also be reconstructed and new traffic detection loops installed through the corridor.

Why is WSDOT resurfacing Padden Parkway from SR 503 to NE 162nd Avenue and then along NE 162nd Avenue to NE Fourth Plain Boulevard in Clark County?
This section of Padden Parkway was last paved when the highway was constructed in 2000. Nearly 20 years of increasing traffic has created cracks, ruts and potholes. Resurfacing will extend the life of the highway and reduce maintenance costs.

What should travelers expect? 
Overview
Travelers should plan for day and nighttime lane closures on both directions of the highway. Construction will also affect the pedestrian path on the south side SR 500.
