SR 500 - SR 503 to NE 4th Plain Blvd - Paving - Complete November 2017

In summer 2017, contractor crews resurfaced Padden Parkway (SR 500) from Northeast 117th Avenue (SR 501) to Northeast 162nd Avenue and then crack sealed along Northeast 162nd Avenue to Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard. ADA ramps were reconstructed and new traffic detection loops we3re installed throughout the corridor.

Why did WSDOT resurface 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 Padden Parkway was last paved when the highway was constructed in 2000. After nearly 20 years of increased traffic, the road was showing signs of wear and tear, including cracks, ruts and potholes. Resurfacing extends the life of the highway and reduces maintenance costs.

The End Result

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

Project Benefits
This project extends the life of the roadway and provides a smoother surface and safer ride for drivers.

What is the project timeline?

  • Spring 2017: Project goes to competitive bidding.
  • Aug. 2017: Construction scheduled to begin.
  • Fall 2017: Project completed.


  • Final total cost of this project $3.5 million.
