WASHOUGAL — Work to build new roundabouts on state Highway 14 in Washougal will cause a 10-day closure on a short section of Washougal River Road.
Beginning 10 p.m. Friday, crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close Washougal River Road between Highway 14 and A Street. The closure is needed as workers start building a roundabout at Highway 14 and Washougal River Road/15th Street.
Drivers will need to use alternate routes during the 10-day closure. Travel on Highway 14 will not be restricted but will be temporarily shifted to the south while crews work on the northern part of the intersection.
Access to Steamboat Landing Park, from 15th Street south of Highway 14, will be open only to right-in/right-out traffic.
During the closure, crews will remove the traffic signal, install drainage, move dirt, reconstruct the roadway, pave, pour a new concrete truck apron for the roundabout, and install new pavement markings.
