Vancouver Mall Area Street Projects

NE Van Mall Drive and Andresen Road Intersection

Over the past few years, you might have seen several street projects in the Vancouver Mall Neighborhood area. Funding for all of these City of Vancouver projects comes from local traffic impact fees and developer contributions. Find out more about each project listed below.

Construction begins during week of June 13

Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive Extension 

Improvements are coming to Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive. This project will stretch from Northeast 72nd Avenue to Northeast 66th Avenue, and will include extending Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive west of Northeast Andresen Road with a new street that connects into Northeast 66th Avenue. The project will improve and optimize the signalized intersection at Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive and Northeast Andresen Road and includes the addition of a dedicated right-turn lane from Vancouver Mall Drive onto northbound Andresen Road. The C-TRAN bus pullout near the intersection along Andresen Road will also be improved. Sidewalk curb ramps that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will be upgraded or installed along Vancouver Mall Drive, between Northeast 72nd and 66th avenues.

The new Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive extension will include: 

   - One lane of traffic in each direction
   - Center turn lane
   - Sidewalks on both sides
   - East/west bike lanes
   - Street lights
   - Street trees (Note: When this project is constructed, trees will be removed for this street connection. New street trees will be planted at the end of the construction work.)

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, June 13, and is anticipated to be completed in early October. In general, construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, construction may continue as late as 8 p.m. and could take place on weekends, if needed.

Northeast 82nd Avenue - Sidewalk Infill

A short stretch of sidewalk will be constructed along the east side of Northeast 82nd Avenue, from the existing sidewalk just north of the apartment complex (near Northeast 56th Street) to just south of Northeast 58th Street where it will tie into the existing sidewalk. This work will include installing bike lanes, planting new street trees and construction of pervious sidewalk to finish this segment while helping to promote pedestrian safety and walkability.

Construction is scheduled to begin Thursday, June 16, and is anticipated to be completed in late July. In general, construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, construction may continue as late as 8 p.m. and could take place on weekends, if needed.
