In 1999, a new signalized intersection was installed at 12th Ave & Main St leading into the then-new Fred Meyer shopping center. At that time, officials from the city, WSDOT, and Fred Meyer recognized and agreed that the signal, with its close proximity to the SR 502/503 intersection, would one day create congestion, need to be removed, and an alternate access to the shopping center be constructed. With a growing population and over 50,000 vehicles passing through the 502/503 intersection each day, that day has arrived.
The Phase 1 Project
There are 3 components to the project related to the signalized intersection leading to the Fred Meyer shopping area:
Projected for December 2/3: NW 5th Way to open for use.
NW 5th Way, just north of Fred Meyer, has been extended east to connect to SR-503. The new roadway will provide right-in and right-out access to and from the shopping area. Already constructed, the road will not open for use until concrete barriers are placed along the centerline of SR-503.
