Delays on SR 4 to Longview expected to begin Monday


February 8, 2018

Expect some delays for travel to and from Longview in the coming weeks. Beginning Monday, the Washington Department of Transportation plans to move the area between Bunker Hill Road and Germany Creek to one lane of traffic in order to contend with a troublesome slide.

A temporary traffic signal will be set up to alternate west and eastbound traffic. The speed limit will be reduced from 55 mph to 25 mph through the area.

WSDOT plans to place metal container boxes on the westside of the highway to keep debris off the road. They will also replace the protective fence that was damaged in the last slide.

They expect to have the project completed by spring.
