Area residents are invited to a virtual open house hosted by Clark County Public Works on sidewalk and road safety improvements planned for Northeast Hazel Dell Avenue. The open house is scheduled for 5 p.m. March 9 via the WebEx platform.
The two-lane urban arterial roadway is used by up to 800 vehicles per hour, according to the county. Schools and public transit facilities in the area create high volumes of pedestrian traffic, and many of those pedestrians are forced to walk along the shoulder because of missing sidewalks. Public Works will address these issues through sidewalk and roadway safety improvements.
Residents will learn about the project’s design, environmental impacts and construction timeline from county staff and project consultants. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer comments.
Registration at https://clark.wa.gov/public-works/ne-hazel-dell-ave-sidewalk is required. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the meeting. Those who do not register can listen in by dialing 1-408-418-9388 and entering meeting number 2492 518 3549 and password 0309. Callers using this method cannot use the chat function or be unmuted to submit verbal questions/comments.
Community members are encouraged to email questions to the project manager before the presentation. A recording of the meeting will be available on the project website within five business days.
