Highway 14 work will close Second Street



Bridge work on state Highway 14 will completely close Second Street in Washougal for two nights next week, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The road will close at 8 p.m. both Monday and Tuesday while crews set bridge girders for the highway overhead. Second Street will reopen by 6 a.m. the following mornings, according to WSDOT.

The work is part of a $49 million project that will expand Highway 14 to four lanes between the West Camas Slough Bridge and Union Street. By the time the job is done, Highway 14 will pass up and over both Union and Second streets. Crews set girders over Union last month.

Highway 14 traffic is currently detoured to a temporary frontage road south of the highway. The project is scheduled for completion late this year or early 2013.
