Clark County residents can learn about plans to extend and improve Northeast 99th Street, from Northeast 94th Avenue east to Northeast 117th Avenue/state Highway 503, during an open house next week.
The open house will be from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the commons area of Building 200 at Prairie High School, 11311 N.E. 119th St.
The project will:
• Build a missing section of Northeast 99th Street east of Northeast 94th Avenue along the north side of the closed Leichner Landfill.
• Improve Northeast 99th Street so it has one vehicle lane in each direction, plus a center turn lane at specific locations.
• Construct roundabouts with street lighting at Northeast 99th Street’s intersections with Northeast 94th Avenue and Northeast 107th Avenue.
• Add sidewalks, bike lanes or mixed-use paths on both sides of Northeast 99th Street.
Construction on the project is tentatively slated for 2021 and 2022.
Clark County scheduled an open house two years before construction so residents and other stakeholders can meet with county staff, ask questions and offer comments. Maps of the proposed plan will be available at the open house.
Construction is estimated to cost about $17 million. Design and property acquisition costs are expected to bring the total project cost to $21 million.
Money for the project will come from a number of sources, including federal and state grants, traffic impact fees, the county road fund and real estate excise taxes.
