Bridge work to slow I-5 traffic near Woodland

By , Columbian staff writer

Travelers headed north on Interstate 5 near Woodland today should plan for delays and additional travel times.

From 5 a.m. through 3 p.m., Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will close the right lane on northbound I-5 approaching the northbound span of the East Fork Lewis River Bridge.

During the closure, bridge crews will install a steel plate to address a developing crack in a vertical steel beam within the bridge deck. Completing this critical repair work will prevent weight and travel restrictions on the bridge.

To keep both road users and road workers safe, WSDOT asks travelers to have patience and obey advanced warning signs.
