Work near the State Route 107 Chehalis River Bridge in Montesano will reach another milestone during the second week of January – and travelers may want to adjust plans if possible.
Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will require a series of 15-minute closures in order to set 15 bridge girders. Backups are likely during the temporary closures, so travelers are encouraged to consolidate or cancel discretionary travel if possible during the daytime work.
Temporary closures of SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge details
- 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Jan. 7-9
- Travelers will encounter up to five full closures of the highway per day approaching the bridge.
- Each closure will last 15 minutes and is expected to cause some traffic backups.
This project replaces the damaged and deteriorating timber that supports the roadway leading to the 1950s era bridge, while also installing modern safety rails and painting the bridge.
Construction will continue for several months and is scheduled for completion this fall.
