Crews are installing temporary lighting at the third work zone for fish habitat improvements under US 12.

This work will remove culverts that block fish migration under the highway. Crews will replace the culvert at Camp Creek with a new bridge.

The reduced speed limit will be enforceable as soon as signs are uncovered.

The temporary speed limit reduction will remain in effect until the project is complete by the end of 2025.

The Washington State Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down and pay attention when traveling through work zones to keep crews and all roadway users safe.
