VANCOUVER – Community members who live near State Route 500 between Interstate 5 and I-205 in Vancouver, or people who walk, bike or drive through the area are invited to weigh in at an open house on Thursday, May 3.

In coordination with local partners including the City of Vancouver, Clark County, C-TRAN, and the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council, the Washington State Department of Transportation has developed three proposed concepts to improve safety along SR 500, while maintaining bicycle and pedestrian access across the highway. Extensive public input helped create these concepts that respond to community identified priorities. Public comments will help WSDOT refine and select a preferred concept and seek funding for future implementation.
