On agenda: 12/5/2016 Final action:
Title: Camas Transportation Corridors Study Details: HDJ, a division of PBS, was hired by Camas staff to perform a study of two vital Camas corridors. The first corridor is an existing arterial consisting of NW 6th Avenue, NE 6th Avenue and SR-500 that is comprised of NE Garfield Street, NE 14th Avenue and NE Everett Street. The purpose of the study was to determine the future needs for all users and to further define desired projects for this corridor that could be included in the City's Capital Improvement Plan. The second corridor considered in this study is a proposed arterial across the North Shore properties. This future three-lane multimodal arterial will eventually replace Leadbetter Road along the Lacamas Lake frontage with a route farther north. HDJ was assigned to look at environmental, topographical and zoning elements of the underdeveloped properties between NE 232nd Avenue (northwesterly limit of corridor) and NE Everett Street (SR-500) near its intersection with NE Garfield Str...

Title
Camas Transportation Corridors Study
Details: HDJ, a division of PBS, was hired by Camas staff to perform a study of two vital Camas corridors. The first corridor is an existing arterial consisting of NW 6th Avenue, NE 6th Avenue and SR-500 that is comprised of NE Garfield Street, NE 14th Avenue and NE Everett Street. The purpose of the study was to determine the future needs for all users and to further define desired projects for this corridor that could be included in the City's Capital Improvement Plan. The second corridor considered in this study is a proposed arterial across the North Shore properties. This future three-lane multimodal arterial will eventually replace Leadbetter Road along the Lacamas Lake frontage with a route farther north. HDJ was assigned to look at environmental, topographical and zoning elements of the underdeveloped properties between NE 232nd Avenue (northwesterly limit of corridor) and NE Everett Street (SR-500) near its intersection with NE Garfield Street (southeasterly border of corridor). The purpose of this investigative work is to provide greater clarity and assurances of a future arterial roadway alignment for the City and for the property owners in the North Shore area as they work toward plans for development. The attached Planning Commission Presentation was provided at the October 18, 2016 Planning Commission meeting. Comments from the commissioners are also attached. As a related item of interest, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) intends to repave SR-500 in 2018. Staff finds this project as an opportunity to consider extending the three-lane roadway from NE 3rd Avenue and Garfield Street westward to NE 3rd Avenue and Dallas Street. Staff discussed the attached NE 3rd Avenue presentation with Council after the Transportation Corridors Study.
