2013 Resurfacing Project – Curb Ramp Improvements: Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard, East Andresen Road and East 33rd Street
As part of the city’s Pavement Management Program, work is under way to install new intersection curb ramps or retrofit existing curb ramps to meet compliance requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Sidewalk Project: Bella Vista Road between Southeast 22nd Street and Southeast 29th Circle
Work is under way to construct new sidewalks along Bella Vista Road to provide better pedestrian access and complete a sidewalk path from McGillivray Boulevard to Southeast 30th Street. The new sidewalk segments will be located on both the east and west sides of Bella Vista Road. On the east, sidewalks will be built between 2207 and 2313 Bella Vista. On the west, sidewalks will be built between 2600 and 2610 Bella Vista, and at 2806 and 2824 Bella Vista, as well. Construction will start with excavation near the south end and progress to the north, with sidewalk installation following after the excavation. Some parking will be restricted, but traffic will be allowed in both directions on Bella Vista Road during construction. Motorists are advised to expect some delays, drive cautiously in the construction zone and watch for flaggers directing traffic. The project should take about two months and is expected to be completed this summer.
Northeast 137th/138th Avenue between Northeast 28th and 49th streets
Construction continues on this major improvement project. When finished, overall improvements will include 1) widened travel lanes with a continuous concrete median and bicycle lanes; 2) new sidewalks, retaining walls, sound walls, storm water drainage improvements, sanitary sewer lines, street lighting, striping and landscaping; and 3) traffic roundabouts where Northeast 137th/138th intersects Northeast 32nd Street (single lane roundabout), Northeast 39th Street (double-lane roundabout), and Northeast 44th Street (single-lane roundabout) to better connect the neighborhood, offer U-turn options for local travel and help manage traffic flow. Construction hours are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with additional hours or Saturdays as needed. Drivers are asked to go slow and be alert to traffic changes and construction equipment and workers. Updates on this project will be posted at city's website at www.cityofvancouver.us/137-138Ave. Completion of this major project is currently anticipated for winter 2013.
Waterfront Access Project
On Monday, June 10, West 11th Street was closed at Lincoln Avenue for approximately two months while Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway completes preparations in advance of a future project to construct another set of north-south tracks near the existing tracks. BNSF has hired Kerr Construction for this phase of the work. The BNSF closure will impact the primary route to the Vancouver Amtrak railroad station. During the temporary closure, a detour will be in place utilizing Jefferson, West Eighth and Hill streets. Drivers traveling in this area or accessing the Amtrak station should be prepared for possible delays and stay alert to construction activities.
The rest of the Vancouver Waterfront Access Project to reconnect the community's downtown area with the Columbia River waterfront is well under way while the next roadway phase of the project continues to advance. Esther Street at Phil Arnold Way and Phil Arnold Way have been closed until the project is completed, which is anticipated for late 2013. Access will be maintained to adjacent businesses, and no impacts beyond those already in place are expected to the popular Vancouver Farmer's Market and Esther Short Park events. The permanent closure of Jefferson Street between Eighth and Evergreen is currently anticipated for late summer or early fall 2013, when the new underpass from Sixth/Grant to Seventh/Jefferson is opened. The total Waterfront Access Project involves road, rail and utility improvements, including reconstruction of the BNSF railway berm in downtown Vancouver and extension of Esther and Grant streets under the rail line. Arnold Way, formerly West Fourth Street, between Columbia and Esther streets is closed when necessary during construction. Additional temporary closures and traffic changes can be expected as work progresses. Closures will be posted and notice will be provided in advance. www.cityofvancouver.us/WaterfrontAccess
