Evergreen Parkway closed for final completion of road work

December 5, 2006

Severe weather causes delay with project

The southbound lane of Evergreen Parkway will be closed at the roundabout at the main college entrance through Monday, Dec. 11.

Improving weather conditions should allow paving to occur Thursday, Dec. 7. The work should be substantially complete by Monday Dec. 11. The project has been delayed due to severe weather that occurred in November - wet and wintry conditions that prevented asphalt from being applied.

Motorists can follow a marked detour off of the parkway and onto Overhulse Rd. NW, then to 17th Ave. NW for access to highway 101. Northbound traffic on the parkway will not be affected, and southbound access to the college will not be affected.

The project straightens an abrupt curve in the roadway and constructs a more efficient roadway bank through the turn. Work will also include connecting the college's bicycle and pedestrian path to the county trail on the west side of the Parkway and improving the transition between the two paths.
