CHEHALIS BRIDGE LIGHTING NOT A WSDOT PRIORITY

Supporters of increased lighting on the Chehalis River Bridge got some mixed news on Wednesday. Street light improvements are not in the immediate plans for the Department of Transportation. In the past few years, light standards have either been removed or brought down by car accidents or winds. Public Works Committee Chair Tim Alstrom says the age of the bridge and the high dollar amount to mount new standards make the project unlikely in the near future, however lights that would benefit pedestrians on the bridge sidewalk are a possibility. Alstrom says those lights would be considerably cheaper and could be mounted along the railings to allow pedestrians are better view of approaching bicyclists, skateboarders or other pedestrians.
