City delays 164th Avenue paving project



Paving of Southeast 164th Avenue was delayed due to issues grinding the old asphalt surface, according to the city of Vancouver.

Private crews will finish grinding southbound lanes on Sept. 5-7 and pave between Sept. 10-14. Grinding of northbound lanes will resume Sept. 16-21. Paving of those lanes is scheduled for Sept. 24-28. Work is scheduled to happen between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays to avoid traffic impacts.

A thin layer of asphalt was added to streets where old layers were removed, the city said.

The paving work is tied to a project to improve the east Vancouver arterial.

Paving is weather dependent and may be rescheduled.
