Clark County Public Works is celebrating the opening of a new section of Northeast 99th Street at a ribbon-cutting ceremony 11:30 a.m. Dec. 15. Attendees should park along Northeast 99th Street, west of Northeast 94th Avenue. Light refreshments will be provided. Councilor Michelle Belkot will cut the ribbon to officially open the road.
The project is intended to improve circulation and access in the area. It completes a missing segment of Northeast 99th Street with three roundabouts, as well as sidewalks, mixed-use paths, marked crosswalks, bike lanes, center turn lanes and street lighting.
Total cost for the project was approximately $22 million, which was covered by county funds and grants from the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council and state Department of Transportation.
