Overnight Mill Plain closures next week

By , Columbian staff writer

Portions of Mill Plain Boulevard will close overnight next week for construction.

Between Sept. 14 and Sept. 17, parts of the roadway will be blocked off to travelers between 9 or 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., according to a media release from the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The schedule, according to WSDOT, is as follows:

  • Beginning at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14, until 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will fully close the intersection of Main Street and Mill Plain Boulevard.
  • Beginning at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15 until 5 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, crews will close the Mill Plain Boulevard onramp to southbound Interstate 5.
  • Beginning at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 16 until 5 a.m., Friday, Sept. 17, crews will close the Mill Plain Boulevard onramp to northbound I-5.

Travelers should plan to use alternate routes. The work is part of the state Highway 501 — I-5 Port of Vancouver — Intersection and Profile Improvements project, meant to make the roadway an easier and safer route for freight trucks traveling to or from the freeway and the port.
