In summer 2017, contractor crews will resurface State Route 500, also known as Padden Parkway, from State Route 503, also known as 117th Avenue., to NE 162nd Avenue and then crack seal along NE 162nd Avenue to NE Fourth Plain Boulevard. ADA ramps will also be reconstructed and new traffic detection loops installed through the corridor.

Why is WSDOT resurfacing SR 500 along Padden Parkway from SR 503 to NE 162nd Avenue and then along NE 162nd Avenue to NE Fourth Plain Boulevard in Clark County?
This section of SR 500 was last paved when the highway was constructed in 2000. Nearly 20 years of increasing traffic has created cracks, ruts and potholes. Resurfacing will extend the life of the highway and reduce maintenance costs.

What should travelers expect? 
Travelers should plan for day and nighttime lane closures on both directions of the highway. Construction will also affect the pedestrian path on the south side SR 500.

NOTE: During two consecutive weekends, you can expect directional closures of  SR 500 between SR 503 and 162nd Avenue. As a safety precaution, the pedestrian path on the south side Padden Parkway will close in conjunction with the paving work for 9 days. Plan to use alternate routes and expect delays.

The End Result

  • A smoother quieter drive, for the more than 32,000 vehicles that use the highway daily. 
  • Improved ADA access throughout corridor.
