Formal access hearing will document testimony of property owners

VANCOUVER – Interstate 205 between Mill Plain Boulevard and Northeast 18th Street averages 109,000 daily drivers and sees heavy congestion and a growing rate of collisions during commute hours.

The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to build a half-diamond interchange at Northeast 18th Street to give drivers another option for accessing this busy and growing area. Nearing a final design for the project, WSDOT is inviting the public to an open house and formal access hearing on Thursday, April 12.

When: Thursday, April 12, 2012
Open house: 4 to 6 p.m.
Formal access hearing: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Where: WSDOT Southwest Region Headquarters
11018 NE 51st Circle
Vancouver, WA 98682

Commuters and neighbors can stop by the open house any time to talk to WSDOT project staff and view displays of the project. After the open house, WSDOT will present proposed access plans and document testimony from property owners.

While testimony during the hearing must be related to property access issues, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss other issues and ask questions with WSDOT staff before and after the hearing.

For those unable to attend the meeting, public testimony can be mailed or emailed to:

Area Engineer Leon Winger
WSDOT Vancouver Area Engineering Office
P.O. Box 1709
Vancouver, WA 98668-1709

The I-205, Mill Plain Interchange to NE 18th Street Project is the second project in a series to improve 1.2 miles of the I-205 corridor in Vancouver. When the project is complete it will help traffic flow smother and safer with a new I-205 northbound off-ramp and southbound on-ramp at Northeast 18th Street. The first project, the I-205 – Mill Plain Exit – 112th Connector Project, was complete in 2010.
