SR 14 delays in west Skamania County starting Monday; construction through October

Drivers on State Route 14 will encounter delays nearly around the clock this summer for a paving and guardrail project between the Clark/Skamania County line and Prindle Rd. Starting Monday, July 16, crews will work two ten-hour shifts, four days a week, in order to complete the project in three months. Drivers can expect single-lane traffic and 20-minute delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 a.m. Crews will work Monday through Thursday until the project is complete in October. The project preserves the scenic highway by grinding out five miles of old pavement and laying fresh asphalt. Crews will also install upgraded guardrail along the entire project area. Drivers can stay in the loop on construction-related traffic impacts by visiting the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Travel Alerts and Southwest Region Construction Update web pages.
