NW Pacific Highway is a major collector road adjacent to Interstate 5 and between the towns of Woodland and La Center, serving local residents along this 5-mile route.It is also a freight alternate to I-5 when needed.On February 12, 2019, a 30-inch culvert just west of the Wellman Road intersection experienced a major washout due to heavy rain runoff.County road crews driving through the area discovered much of the culvert destroyed leaving a hole in the roadway.The county closed the road immediately and monitored it while the hole continued to grow.On February 13, 2019, the Clark County Council adopted resolution number 2019-02-11, declaring an emergency for Pacific Highway.The road remained closed so that the county could do the necessary repairs to open it up again.The county quickly formed a project team that designed, rebuilt and restored the road by March 29. The repairs provided a 13 foot corrugated metal pipe suitable for fish passage as required by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.Work included stabilizing the bank, and replacing guardrail and pavement.

Clark County gained $532,200 in emergency RATA funding from the CRABoard on April 25, 2019 for the repair of NW Pacific Highway, MP 1.81 to MP 1.83
