Clark County season of road work set to begin Monday

By , Columbian staff writer

Beginning Monday, Clark County Public Works crews will begin surface treatment work on arterial and collector roads throughout urban and rural areas of the county.

Crews will be sealing cracks in the roads and paving small areas that have sunk or deteriorated. The work may result in traffic delays as travel lanes may be reduced or shifted at times or controlled by a pilot car. Flaggers will help guide drivers around the work areas.

This is the first step in the surface treatment work. Surface defects and irregularities are repaired using various methods including crack sealing, pavement repairs, and pre-leveling. The next step will be to add a new layer of hot mix asphalt.

Work will begin at 7 a.m., ending at 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Crews will be working throughout the summer before wrapping up in September, if the weather cooperates.

More information can be found at https://clark.wa.gov/public-works/hma. Residents can also find information on Public Works’ Twitter, Facebook and Instagram page, and on Nextdoor.
