Utility Construction and Paving on N. Pacific, 4th Av, Oak St, and 5th Av

Construction to replace old sewer lines, water lines, and storm drains, and to repave the N. Pacific from Allen to Cowlitz Way, 4th and 5th from Oak to Allen, and Oak from 4th to 5th will begin in mid-February 2022 and continue into June or July, depending on weather. In addition to the paving and utility work, sidewalk access ramps will be replaced at most of the corners to bring them into compliance with the federal “Americans With Disabilities Act” requirements.

During construction, driveways, travel lanes and parking on these streets will be closed at times, and traffic will be shifted around the construction with traffic cones and flaggers, or will be detoured.

Funding for the project is provided by the City, and by a grant from the Transportation Improvement Board.
