Vancouver, Wash. -- A contractor will start the summer paving program this month with pavement repairs and other preliminary work on nine sections of Clark County roads.

Clark County awarded a $5.13 million contract to Granite Construction Co. to pave about 26 lane miles of county roadway using approximately 39,600 tons of asphalt.

Crews will repair and pave:
* Highway 99, from the railroad bridge north to Northeast 78th Street.
* Northeast 99th Street/LaLonde Drive, from Highway 99 east to Northeast St. Johns Road.
* Padden Parkway, from Northeast 78th Street east to Northeast Andresen Road.
* Northeast 184th Street/Mattson Road, from Northeast 182nd Avenue east to just west of Northeast 198th Avenue.
* Northeast 68th Street, from Highway 99 east to the Vancouver city limits at Northeast 28th Avenue.
* Northeast 72nd Street, from Highway 99 east to Northeast 16th Avenue.
* Northeast 16th Avenue, from Northeast 72nd Street north to Northeast 78th Street.
* Northeast 299th Street, from Northeast 82nd Avenue east to State Route 503.
* Northwest 179th Street, from Northwest 11th Avenue east to Northeast Delfel Road.

Because of high traffic volumes, Highway 99, Padden Parkway and the section of Northeast 99th Street between Highway 99 and Northeast 25th Avenue will be paved overnight, from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.

Along with asphalt overlays, the county's summer road preservation program includes slurry, cape and chip seal treatments. All preservation work is designed to protect the public's investment in county roads and extend their useful life.
