Upcoming Capital Improvement Projects

Now that the sun is back, the Public Works Department will be working on several capital improvement projects that will preserve our streets, increase safety and keep the city moving towards economic diversity. In order to help keep everyone informed we created a new upcoming capital improvement webpage. The public works department will do our best to keep this page up to date, so everyone will know what to expect.

Upcoming Traffic Revisions

  • GUARDRAIL INSTALLATION AND FULL ROAD CLOSURE - On Northeast Lockwood Creek Road east of La Center.
    Project: Dirt and Aggregate Interchange Inc., a Fairview, Oregon-based contractor working for Clark County Public Works, will add guardrail on a portion of Northeast Lockwood Creek Road, from Northeast 60th Avenue east to Northeast Morcroft Road. A short retaining wall, with tie-back anchors extending through the soil under the road, is needed to support the guardrail. Installing the wall and anchors will require the contractor to use the entire width of Northeast Lockwood Creek Road and require closing a section of the road to all traffic.
    Construction is expected to last for about six weeks in July and August. Residents should watch for temporary road signs that will go up seven days before the start of construction.
