Closures will be coming to the Chehalis River Bridge outside Montesano this week, and drivers should prepare for the delays.
The Washington State Department of Transportation have announced that work near the State Route 107 Chehalis River Bridge in Montesano will require some daytime delays as girders are set.
Crews working on the bridge will require a series of 15-minute closures in order to set 15 bridge girders.
Backups are likely during the temporary closures, so travelers are encouraged to consolidate or cancel discretionary travel if possible during the daytime work.
