BATTLE GROUND – Drivers, residents, and businesses that rely on the State Route 502 corridor will encounter construction and delays starting this spring as the Washington State Department of Transportation begins work on an $88 million safety and mobility project.
Construction of new lanes, traffic signals and median barrier means lane closures, flagging and more throughout the 4.5-mile, three-year-long project.
Join WSDOT at an open house Thursday, March 27, to hear more, talk with project staff and provide feedback. Stop by anytime; there is no formal presentation.

This year, crews will focus on relocating multiple utilities that run along both sides of SR 502 and widening a short section of highway just west of Dollars Corner.
During the second and third years of construction, crews will widen the rest of SR 502, install new traffic signals and median barrier, and construct sidewalks and bicycle lanes in Dollars Corner. The entire project is expected to wrap up in late 2016.
The SR 502 – Widening from I-5 to Battle Ground project is funded through the 2003 and 2005 legislative gas-tax packages. It is one of the last projects funded under these packages to begin construction in Clark County.
