Road closures for Fort fireworks show

Vancouver’s Fireworks Spectacular at the Fort Vancouver National Site should be a blast, though getting to and from Thursday’s fireworks show could be more aggravating than exciting.

Drivers should be aware of road closures and restrictions near Fort Vancouver.

Roads closed all day:

• Fort Vancouver Way south of Mill Plain Boulevard.

• East Reserve Street south of Mill Plain Boulevard.

Roads closed beginning at 10 a.m.:

• Evergreen Boulevard, from West Reserve Street to U Street.

• Mill Plain Boulevard at Fort Vancouver Way.

• East Ninth Street at East Reserve Street.

• East Eighth Street at T Street.

• East Sixth Street at U Street.

• East Fifth Street at U Street.

Roads closed or restricted beginning at 6 p.m.:

• Interstate 5 northbound exit at Mill Plain Boulevard.

• I-5 southbound exit at Mill Plain Boulevard. Traffic, except for C-Tran buses, will be required to turn right and head west into downtown.

• Mill Plain Boulevard between Fort Vancouver Way and East Reserve Street.

Road closed beginning at 8 p.m.:

• Grand Boulevard between Evergreen Boulevard and East Fifth Street.

Roads closed or restricted starting at 9 p.m.:

• State Highway 14 westbound exit at Columbia House Boulevard-Grove Street.

• Highway 14 eastbound exit at Columbia Shores Boulevard-Columbia Way.

• All lanes on Fort Vancouver Way north of Mill Plain Boulevard will be used for northbound traffic only.

• No east-west travel on McLoughlin Boulevard across Fort Vancouver Way.

If all this sounds too confusing, then consider taking C-Tran’s free shuttle.

Shuttles depart from the 99th Street and Fisher’s Landing transit centers every 15 minutes, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and return passengers to the two transit centers immediately after the fireworks end at about 10:25 p.m.
