Needs & benefits

In late 2020, crews repaired damaged sections of rockfall fence along SR 4 between mileposts 46.98 to 47.65 near Oak Point in Cowlitz County. Crews also removed rocks and trees that built up behind the rockfall fence. This project work helps to reduce the possibility of emergency closures and traffic delays due to rockslides.


June 8, 2020: Contract advertised for competitive bidding.
November 2020: Construction scheduled to begin.
Spring 2021: Construction complete.


Estimated cost for the project is $850,000 of state and federal funds.
