Public Service Center

The Clark County Public Service Center in downtown Vancouver

Those interested in learning about proposed improvements on Northeast 99th Street between Northeast 94th Avenue and Northeast 117th Avenue/State Route 503 will have a chance next week as Clark County Public Works will put on an open house at Prairie High School on June 26.

Public Works will host the event from 4:30 – 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 26, in the commons area of building 200 at the high school, 11311 NE 119th St., Brush Prairie

The open house has been scheduled early in the process in an effort to let stakeholders meet with county staff, the release stated, and the open house will include maps of the plan.

Changes to the stretch of road are proposed to include:

• Roundabouts at the intersections of Northeast 94th Avenue/Northeast 99th Street and Northeast 107th Avenue/Northeast 99th Street

• Sidewalks, bike lanes and/or mixed-use paths on both sides of Northeast 99th Street

• A travel lane in each direction

• Center turn lane in specific locations

• New street lighting at roundabouts

The project is estimated to cost $17 million and will be funded “from a variety of sources” including grants from federal and state agencies, impact fees from new construction, the county’s real estate excise tax and the county road fund, the announcement noted.
