Water Station 1 construction project and impacts on the main campus
The City of Vancouver is beginning Phase 2 of its Water Station 1 construction project, located to the north of Clark College’s main campus. This construction, which is anticipated to continue through late 2021, will affect the main campus in several ways that we want you to be aware of:
- Effective May 13, the entrance to Green Lot 2 from E. Reserve Street will be closed for the duration of the project. Detour signs will direct traffic through the Brown Lot. However, the college strongly
recommends that drivers enter and exit the Green Lots via Fort Vancouver Way whenever
- When using the Brown Lot detour, please drive slowly and exercise caution as there
may be more pedestrian and vehicle traffic than normal in that area.
- The pedestrian path running through the Water Station 1 site from E. Reserve Street to Fourth Plain Boulevard is being rerouted during construction. A new path is being built and is anticipated to be completed by the end of this summer, but for now please pay attention to and comply with any pedestrian detour signage in place.
Though the City and its contractors will work to reduce impacts where possible, some disruption—including noise, dust, tree removal, and heavy-equipment traffic—is inevitable. The college will work with the City to mitigate its effect on the college community as much as possible.
While this construction may create some inconvenience for our community here at the college, it is important to the future sustainability of the greater Vancouver community. Water Station 1 is the city’s largest source of drinking water. For more information about the project, visit www.cityofvancouver.us/water.
