FORT VANCOUVER

The National Park Service has improved accessibility by installing multi-purpose all-weather pavements at the reconstructed Hudson Bay Company post at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Vancouver, Washington. Starting in 2002 with their first installation of the NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement surfacing for walkways surrounding the reconstructed buildings within the fort, the pavement system has since been expanded throughout the fort and exterior gardens out to the city street, the visitor parking lots and to the site of the historical Kanaka workers village outside the fort. The NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement mix selected for the project is formulated with aggregate materials of earthy brown coloration to provide the look of dirt paths historically present when Hudson Bay Company employees of the 1830s and 1840s occupied the site. To visually blend the installations from the various paving phases inside and outside the fort, and to present a roughened and even more historically appropriate appearance, the same NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement mix was reformulated as a slurry seal and applied with squeegees and brooms once all the paving phases were completed.

The pavements for the adjacent Vancouver Land Bridge project were constructed with the same NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement mix, furnishing a visual continuity for both of these related projects. The Vancouver Land Bridge reconnects historic Vancouver with the Columbia River, arching over Washington State Route 14 and under a railroad embankment to a site on the waterfront where a wharf once stood. In the eight year period since the National Park Service installed their first section of NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement walkways within Fort Vancouver, there has been an average of 32 days per year when freezing temperatures were experienced and approximately two days per year when temperatures were at or below freezing for the entire day. The record low temperature of -10°F occurred during this period of time. The rainfall for Vancouver, Washington, averages approximately 42 inches per year. In spite of the high number of freeze-thaw cycles experienced and the wet weather conditions, the high strength NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement installations are without sign of wear or damage after eight years in service.
