SR 14 - 1.7 Miles East of Bingen - Slope Stabilization

Project overview

What to expect

Once construction begins in summer 2021, travelers should expect weekday, daytime, alternating single and double lane closures for the duration of the project with delays of up to 20 minutes.

During rock scaling work, crews will close both directions of SR 14 for 45 minutes at the beginning of each hour. Both lanes of the highway must reopen once an hour to provide a minimum of 15 minutes to clear traffic. Rock scaling work will occur weekdays, during daylight hours. We understand the 45-minute closures will greatly impact travelers through the area, however, for the safety of the traveling public, these closures will only occur when crews are performing rock-scaling work. 

No full closures of the highway will occur after 12 p.m. (noon) on Fridays.
