N. 1st Place Roadway Improvements

North 1st Place in Hermiston.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: ST 6.0
ESTIMATED COST: $4,500,000 (funded with state transportation dollars)
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • Redevelops N. 1st Place from W. Hermiston Ave. north to W. Elm Ave.
  • Strengthens secondary north/south arterial west of railroad tracks
  • Rebuilds existing roadway and turn lanes
  • Installs curbs, gutters and sidewalks to meet ADA standards
  • Develops drainage and delineates parking while creating formal driveways
  • Coordinates work with water and wastewater departments, as well as outside utilities

WHY IT’S NEEDED

North 1st Place is a critical secondary north/south arterial in Hermiston’s transportation system. The existing road is cracking, there are no sidewalks, and there is unrestricted access to the roadway from parking and undeveloped areas. Roadway improvements will prevent premature failure and ensure the road is functional for community and business use in the area.
