RICHLAND, Wash. — Prepare to slow down when driving on Jadwin Ave for the next few days. City crews are putting the final touches on a pavement preservation project that will make the critical roadway safer to drive on moving forward.
As reiterated by the City of Richland’s Public Works Department, crews are nearing the end of their pavement projects for 2022 with the Jadwin Ave initiative. Weather permitting, they will complete the Jadwin Overlay project between Thursday, October 27 and Tuesday, November 1.
The roadway on Jadwin Ave will be stripped from Van Giesen Street to Coast Street, which is a one-mile stretch that leads into the Bypass Highway intersection. To help with congestion on the roadway and nearby pedestrians, flaggers will be stationed adjacent to Chief Joseph Middle School between Van Giesen and McMurray St.

Detours will be established at Jadwin’s intersection with McMurray St and Catskill St, so expect to spend longer in this stretch than you otherwise might. There is a possibility that they finish the project a bit earlier than expected, and if that’s the case, they will move out.
Commuters hoping to ride through the area would be wise to find alternate routes during high-traffic hours in order to avoid what could potentially turn into long stints stuck in traffic.
The project will be conducted by Inland Asphalt, the assigned contractor working for the City’s public works.
