The project to pave portions of Northwest Drive and Slater Road has officially started. This project will also replace a culvert on Northwest that will completely close the road for several weeks starting on Monday, Aug. 24. Here’s an overview of what to expect in the next few weeks:

  • Northwest will close to all traffic on Monday, Aug 24, for the culvert replacement portion of the project. We expect the closure to last until at least Sep. 11. We will pave Northwest immediately after the closure. During the paving portion, drivers should expect delays but no additional closures.
  • Crack seal road repair work will happen during the road closure. Getting both aspects of the project done at the same time will help us minimize the impact to drivers. We will still have some traffic control and flaggers when needed.
  • Slater Road paving will start between Pacific Highway and Northwest while Northwest is closed. This could impact drivers exiting I-5 at Slater Road who want to go east.
  • Work will occur the week of Labor Day. Drivers heading out for the holiday weekend should plan accordingly to use the Northwest Drive detour and expect delays on Slater Road.
  • We expect to finish this project in late September.
