This project will repave portions of Northwest Drive and Slater Road from mid-August through September 2020. Some notable aspects of this project:

  • A culvert will be replaced on Northwest Drive between Slater Road and Larrabee Road. This will close the road for up to three weeks. 
    • A detour will be in place during the closure, and traffic will be diverted around that section of Northwest onto Pacific Highway.
