I-5 – northbound between 17.2 and 19.0 – on the Lewis River Bridge
Freight travelers who use northbound Interstate 5 will temporarily shift to use the center lane along the northbound span of the Lewis River Bridge about two miles south of Woodland. Shifting large truck traffic to use the center lane of northbound I-5 helps prevent further damage to the bridge deck and extends the usable life of temporary repairs until more permanent repairs can be scheduled when warmer weather returns.
Beginning Tuesday, July 5, travelers should expect delays during paving work on a nearly 10-mile stretch of Fourth Plain Boulevard, also called State Route 500, between Northeast 162nd Avenue and Northeast Leadbetter Road near Camas.
In addition to a safer, smoother roadway to preserve SR 500, speed limits are being reduced to slow traffic down in the corridor and passing zones are being eliminated to improve safety for people traveling on the highway.
Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will pave both directions during a two-month period. Beginning July 5, people traveling on this portion of SR 500 should plan for:
- Delays up to 20 minutes.
- Daytime and nighttime closures.
- Travel limited to a single lane.
- A pilot car to escort travelers through the work zone.
- Residents whose driveways connect to this section of Fourth Plain Boulevard should be prepared to wait for a pilot car to navigate them through the work zone.
