Washington State Department of Transportation crews have completed repairs on Rock Crusher Hill, restoring two-way traffic to the area. The repairs were completed with compressed gravel, which will require that a temporary 25 mph speed limit remains in place until further notice.
This section of highway slipped down 6 inches following the recent rain. WSDOT had installed a culvert into the hillside to divert water away from the road, but despite efforts to reduce movement, the slide continues to impact the highway.
Patching and paving efforts are only temporary, and will continue until funds for a permanent repair can be identified.
