The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

KM slide work done for the winter


November 26, 2020

On Monday, crews reopened both lanes of State Route 4 west of Skamokawa, according to a report from the Washington State Department of Transportation.

A landslide closed the highway last Jan. 23. On the following Feb. 8, crews reopened a single lane of the highway, keeping one lane closed for long term hillside stabilization work. Workers excavated sliding material and installed a rock key to hold the hillside in place. The location borders a similar project from a slide that occurred in February, 1996.

While most of the construction is now complete, crews will return when temperatures are warmer to install a mixture of seeds and mulch that will help with erosion control.
