SR 432 (Industrial Way) - SR 433 (Oregon Way) - Intersection Improvements

Project overview

Located in Longview, WA, the intersections of SR 432 (Industrial Way) and SR 433 (Oregon Way) are critical connections of statewide significance that supports passenger and freight traffic in southwest Washington.

Currently three rail lines cross with traffic at these intersections. During peak travel times, traffic backs up along the arterial corridors and along the SR 433 Lewis and Clark Bridge, also known as the Rainier Bridge. This project will address traffic congestion, freight mobility and safety issues at one of the busiest truck tonnage intersections in the state.

What to expect

As part of ongoing work to identify a revised project design that fits within budget, WSDOT is in the process of conducting a traffic circulation study and additional coordination efforts with the residential and business community. Concurrently, nearby properties have been purchased, a project activity that can occur years before construction begins. This fall, people who frequently travel through the area will see crews begin demolition of the strip mall that included a Subway and Starbucks at the intersection of Oregon Way and Industrial Way.

Currently in the early design stage, this project will look at constructing grade separated intersections, providing a long-term solution that improves safety and keeps traffic moving.
