The NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street Intersection Improvements Project includes reconstructing the intersection of NW Irvinedale Drive and NW 5th Street to provide dedicated left turn lanes in all four directions. The street reconstruction in the vicinity of the intersection includes replacing the existing asphalt rural roadways with concrete urban streets including curb and gutter. Other associated improvements include: a new traffic signal; storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main upgrades; and a retaining wall along the west side of NW Irvinedale Drive between NW 5th Street and NW 9th Street. When complete, the project will provide increased traffic capacity and mobility at the intersection, along with improving safety for both motorists and pedestrians.
