Vancouver Mall Area Street Projects

Three new street improvement projects are coming to the Vancouver Mall Neighborhood area in 2014. Funding for all three of these City of Vancouver projects comes from local traffic impact fees and developer contributions. Construction is anticipated to begin this summer along Northeast 45th Street and Northeast 82nd Avenue Northeast. Find out more about each project listed below.

Northeast 45th Street Extension

Northeast 45th Street will be completed from east of Northeast 72nd Avenue to about 200 feet west of Northeast 77th Avenue. The existing gravel road will be upgraded to a paved, urban street and will connect the section that is currently missing.

   - One lane of traffic in each direction
   - New sidewalks on both sides
   - East/west bike lanes
   - Street lights
   - Street trees

Landscaping at northeast corner of Northeast 45th Street and Northeast 72nd Avenue to create a smaller intersection width.
 

Northeast 82nd Avenue Improvements

Improvements planned along the existing street of Northeast 82nd Avenue, from Northeast 51st Street to Northeast 58th Street.

From Northeast 51st Street to north of Northeast 54th Street (end of apartment complex)

   - Minor widening of street
   - Infill sidewalks
   - ADA-compliant curb ramps
   - North/south bike lanes
   - Street trees

From just north of Northeast 54th Street to Northeast 58th Street

   - This section is currently under design review.
   - The proposal balances the need for parking with the neighborhood’s desire for north/south bike lanes and sidewalks.
 

Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive Extension

This project is currently on-hold while the City reviews and evaluates additional traffic needs and issues for enhanced improvements, especially for the intersection of Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive and Northeast Andresen Road. Although this project has been temporarily delayed, it still remains a part of the City’s Transportation Improvement Program.

This future project includes extending Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive to west of Northeast Andresen Road with a new street that connects with Northeast 66th Avenue.

   - One lane of traffic in each direction
   - Center turn lane
   - Sidewalks on both sides
   - East/west bike lanes
   - Street lights
   - Street trees

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. Please note that this project is currently still under design. The signalized intersection and configuration options under review for Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive and Northeast Andresen Road will help determine the final project schedule.
