Bypass work begins at SR 401 Megler slide
April 8, 2021
On Monday, the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) emergency contractor Big River Excavating began clearing debris to make way for a temporary road around a damaged section of SR 401 south of Naselle with the intent of restoring travel along SR 401 between Naselle and Megler by mid-April.
During construction of the bypass road, travelers should continue to use an alternate route, according to WSDOT. The Dismal Nitch Rest Area, east of the Astoria-Megler Bridge, remains closed.
