The Road to success is always under construction, And right now, so is the Highway 99 and 99th Street intersection in Hazel Dell.

Drivers along the intersection of Northeast 99th Street and Highway 99 can expect intermittent lane closures, beginning Monday, August 3rd through November 2020.

Due to high traffic volumes and the complexity of the contracted work, drivers and pedestrians can expect the following impacts during construction:

 

  • Single-lane closures with delays on Highway 99 and Northeast 99th Street between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Complete and partial road closures on westbound Northeast 99th Street for up to a total of 16 days. These closures are anticipated to occur in mid-October.
  • Single-lane closures on Highway 99 southbound.
  • Complete closure of the Highway 99 southbound right-turn lane for the duration of construction.
  • Other lanes may be closed as needed.

 

Clark County Public Works’ contractor, Nutter Corporation of Vancouver,  will widen lanes on this heavily traveled corridor, allowing drivers to more easily navigate turning movements. This work also includes filling in gaps in the existing bicycle lanes on Highway 99 and building a bicycle lane on Northeast 99th Street, from Highway 99 west to Northeast 13th Avenue. The combination of heavy traffic, a skewed intersection, narrow lanes, and a tight turning radius has created congestion problems and safety concerns.

All contracted work is expected to be complete in Nov. 2020.
