Ocosta street flooding addressed, street closed

OCOSTA, Wash. – Third street in Ocosta is about to be an abandoned underwater street. The county commissioners yesterday approved the recommendation by county engineer Russ Esses to close the somewhat-blind intersection at State Route 105, also noting that portions of the loop road are flooded year round. He said property owners won’t loose access to anything, the road is flooded at the intersection of 3rd and Atlantic due to a beaver dam on private property.
