To meet the ongoing needs of our population, this winter the City of Camas will begin construction of a new water reservoir. Details are provided below, and we welcome you to contact us at any point should you have questions. Those in the project vicinty also received a personal letter with this information enclosed.

  •  A new above-ground water reservoir, approximately 40 feet tall and 90 feet in diameter, will be constructed on the north side of Northwest 18th Avenue at Northwest Tidland Street. (See map.)
  • The site selected has the available land and is at the correct elevation to eliminate the need for costly long-term pumping and the need to construct an elevated tank.
  • The reservoir will provide a vital storage of water to be used in the event of a fire and other times of high demand, such as in the summer months.
  • Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2020 and last for approximately one year. Work is expected to occur on weekdays from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. and will not exceed 7 p.m.
  • The structure, a 2-million-gallon steel tank, will be 90 feet wide and 40 feet high. It will be green to blend into the surroundings. A similar reservoir resides just south of Northwest Lake Road, west of Northwest Lacamas Lane. (See photo.)
  • The structure will be enclosed by a 6-foot fence and will include several safety features.
  • Enhanced landscaping, new street trees, and additional improvements will be made along Northwest 18th Avenue to beautify the area and provide natural screening.
  • Most construction will be contained to the site itself and not impact the roadway.

STATUS: The City is currently advertising for construction bids. We anticipate a contract to be awarded and construction to begin in early 2020.

PROJECT DETAILS: Construction of the Brady Road Improvements from NW 16th Avenue to NW Pacific Rim Blvd began in September 2019 and is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2020. Motorists are strongly encouraged to avoid the area due to intermittent construction related delays. The new roadway will include one lane in each direction with a center left-turn lane or raised median, bike lanes, sidewalks, storm water collection and treatment, water and sewer system improvements, landscaping, street lighting and other related improvements. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Work expected to occur this Fall and Winter includes relocation of the existing overhead utilities to a joint utility trench, installation of new underground utilities and retaining wall construction. While the project will include the installation of a temporary lane on the west side of the existing pavement to facilitate two-way traffic during construction, motorists will likely experience delays when driving through the project.The improvement contract was awarded to Rotschy, Inc. of Vancouver at the City Council Meeting held on August 19th for their bid price of $5,684,212.54. The improvements will include one lane in each direction with a center left-turn lane or raised median, bike lanes, sidewalks, storm water collection and treatment, water and sewer system improvements, landscaping, lighting and other related improvements. Questions may be directed to Justin Monsrud, 360-817-7232, or PBS Field inspector, Mike Novak, 360-560-2442.

NE 3rd Avenue Bridge Seismic Retrofit

PROJECT DETAILS: Seismic improvements to the NE 3rd Avenue Bridge over the Washougal River are currently being designed by a consultant team lead by Harper Houf Peterson Righellis, Inc. (HHPR) of Vancouver. The project will reinforce the existing structure such that it will be better able to withstand a large subduction zone earthquake in the future. The project is funded by a $2.8 million grant from the WSDOT Local Agency Bridge Program. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2020.

The NE 3rd Avenue Bridge in Camas is a two span structure carrying 4 lanes of traffic over the Washougal River.  The bridge is comprised of two side by side structures, the first being a 1947 steel girder bridge which was then widened in 1970 with a concrete girder bridge. The bridge provides a critical arterial link between the cities of Camas and Washougal, and has ADT’s in the range of 10k. Camas has received Federal Funding through the WSDOT Local Bridge Program to design and construct seismic and other related improvements.

STATUS: Review in progress
