Motorists may encounter traffic delays on US 12 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday while crews repair highway median barrier. From 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close the left lanes of both eastbound and westbound US 12 along a 1.5-mile segment of highway between Central Park and Montesano. Each day crews will move their operations, focusing efforts on median barrier located between mileposts 3 and 8.
Motorists are advised to expect slight delays and to add extra time to reach their destinations.
A Montesano woman was transported to Community Hospital yesterday with non-life-threatening injuries after she apparently lost control of her 1992 Maxda MX3 and slid under a semi-trailer in the right lane of eastbound State Route 12.
Trooper Russ Winger with the Washington State Patrol said the semi was slowing for an accident ahead. State Route 12 traffic was blocked for more than an hour in Central Park as they investigated. The driver of the semi was not injured.
Investigators listed speeding as a factor, and said charges will be filed against 62 year old Viona McCleod.
The Washington State Patrol reports just after 1 p.m. Monday a 2005 Chevy Blazer failed to negotiate the corner on State Route 12 near Devonshire road, spun out of control, went through the cable barrier and came to rest in the median. A 3 year old, and two Montesano women in the vehicle, aged 19 and 18 were not injured. The driver was cited for speeding too fast for conditions.
The Central Park 7-11 has no gas pumps at the moment. Never fear, sources tell us they are replacing tanks and pumps for all three grades.They began construction this week, the dust should settle on new pumps within 6 weeks or so. In the meantime mind the construction site, the fence currently blocks access from Solki Road so you have to get in and out from the highway.
