Drivers who cross the US 101 Chehalis River Bridge should plan some extra time for their Wednesday morning commute. Department of Transportation bridge maintenance crews will close the 59-year old bridge repeatedly to repair the bridge’s drive system.
The work is scheduled until 8 am today. During the repair, traffic in both directions of US 101 will be held for fifteen-minute increments while workers make the repairs.
In Pacific County, due to weather-related issues, WSDOT has delayed reducing the SR 6 Willapa River Bridge to a single lane. Crews are now scheduled to implement 10 weeks of around-the-clock single-lane traffic on Monday, Feb. 24
