Slide repairs scheduled on US 12 near Aberdeen

ABERDEEN – As early as Monday, April 3, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will begin emergency repairs along the shoulder of westbound US 12 east of Aberdeen. The work will take place between Schrader Lane and Holbrook Lane.

What to expect

WSDOT’s contractor, Quigg Bros., Inc., will rebuild the roadway shoulder and hillside. While most of the work will take place out of the roadway, crews will close the right lane between Schrader Lane and Holbrook Lane during the day. WSDOT will announce any additional lane closures in advance on the WSDOT app and the statewide travel map. Travelers are encouraged to stay alert when passing work zones to help keep crews safe.

Why this is needed

In late December 2022, WSDOT maintenance crews found an embankment slide on the shoulder of US 12 at milepost 4.6. Following an inspection of the slope and roadway, crews closed the shoulder and have monitored the location until repairs can be made.

If the weather cooperates, crews will complete repairs this spring.

Slow down – lives are on the line. 

In 2023, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.

Even one life lost is too many.

Fatal work zone crashes doubled in 2023 - Washington had 10 fatal work zone crashes on state roads.

It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.

95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
