Washougal River Road Back Open to Through Traffic
Well Finally!

As per the Clark County Public Works Web Site.

Project update - Oct. 17, 2012

Northeast Washougal River Road is now open to through traffic. Conway Construction Co. of Ridgefield, the county’s general contractor, reopened the road after installing guardrails and finishing other final construction items.

The bridge was closed for about 13 weeks from Milepost 5.1 to 5.2 to replace the timber bridge with a precast concrete girder bridge. Construction started in mid-July and the project was finished on time.

Periodic single-lane closures may take place in the coming weeks so crews can complete guardrail work, but any closures will be relatively brief.
If anyone is heading down the Gorge for any reason, this is a nice alternative to SR-14. At least until the freezing temps hit the area.

Go steady though folks..........the new bridge is great but they took the opportunity to do some patching while they were at it.......... sketchy patches in some curves right now.

Took a ride out with Dave this fine overcast day and the roads out that way were overall just fine. WRR was in great shape and pretty clean. There was brown ice in a few corners on Sky/Hughes road, as well as on Salmon Falls Rd. The worst area was Canyon Creek Rd above the Park and Ride off of SR-14. However, that was the worst and wasn't too bad. Additionally, we figure that most of the leaves should be washed away after the next major rain storms.

In any event, if you head out that way during a storm break, just stay alert and take it easy through there until your sure the corner is clear.
