It has become not cost-effective to continue repaving the roadway until further earthwork can be done. This project aims to address just that. Crews will drill 6' diameter holes nearly 50' deep and fill in the remaining sections with rock in an effort to dramatically stabilize this stretch of highway. Drivers will encounter shifted lanes and reduced speeds during this two-season construction project. Project page. 
Work Schedule:  Expect day and night construction with single lane closures beginning late June through fall 2020.

A rehabilitated bridge will reduce overall maintenance costs and preserve the bridge against corrosion. Project page. 
Work Schedule: Drivers will notice new speed limit signs on SR 107 near Montesano beginning the week of April 29. The speed limit will be reduced from 40 mph to 25 mph between milepost 6.9 and 7.1 throughout the entirety of the project. 

Beginning as early as May 6, drivers will see crews conducting preparatory work and traffic impacts (one-way alternating controlled by a signal) that will be in place by mid-June.  Drivers should also expect occasional night and full weekend closures as crews work to keep the bridge open to local traffic. Oversized and overweight loads may need to use alternate routes. Please contact Commercial Vehicle Services to determine if an alternate route is necessary.
