Closure of southbound lane of Evergreen Parkway
Published: October 27, 2006
The southbound lane of Evergreen Parkway will be closed at the roundabout at the main college entrance 24 Friday, Oct. 27 through Nov. 10.
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 closure comes at the request of the contractor straightening an abrupt curve in the roadway and constructing 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, decreasing the trail slope and improving the transition between the two paths.
