SR 14 - E of Bingen – Port of Klickitat Access Improvements

Project overview

To reduce the potential for an increase in delays and connectivity issues, WSDOT in partnership with BNSF, are working to design and construct an improved rail crossing that will reduce backups along SR 14 due to train traffic and increase safety and connectivity between Bingen Point, the Port of Klickitat and SR 14, in Klickitat County. 

Currently, the public and emergency responders use at-grade railroad crossings to access the Port of Klickitat and Bingen Point from SR 14. With planned economic expansion coupled with anticipated increased train traffic, there will be delays and connectivity issues.

What to expect

To reduce the potential for an increase in delays and connectivity issues, WSDOT in partnership with BNSF, are working to design and construct an improved rail crossing that will reduce backups along SR 14 due to train traffic and increase safety and connectivity between Bingen Point, the Port of Klickitat and SR 14, in Klickitat County. 

During construction, travelers may encounter intermittent single-lane closures with flaggers, and delays of up to 20-minites through the work zone.  

This project will provide reliable and uninterrupted access between West Steuben Street (SR 14) and the Port of Klickitat/Bingen Point, in Klickitat County, WA.
