The entrance road to/from 50th Ave will be closed to outbound (east bound) traffic on Thursday and possibly Friday of this week (9/27-28/18). Clark Regional Waste Water District (CRWWD) construction crews will be doing minor excavating work (pot-holing) to verify the location of existing utilities in preparation for a new sanitary sewer main that will be installed next summer. The pot-holing work will also be conducted on 50th Avenue on the same days.

Please observe signage and the direction of flaggers who will be present during the work.

Your patience is appreciated during this necessary inconvenience. This investment by CRWWD supports our growth and enhances the services available here at WSU Vancouver.
