Improvements to include installation of two roundabouts on the highway at Washougal River Road/15th Street and 32nd Street
WASHOUGAL — This summer, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will begin work to improve safety and access to and from SR 14 in Washougal by installing two roundabouts on the highway at Washougal River Road/15th Street and 32nd Street.
To keep residents informed and minimize the impact of construction, the city has created a dedicated page for closure and detour updates. Information will be updated as construction on the SR 14 Access Improvements Project occurs. All dates/times are subject to change.
Travelers who use 32nd Street to access State Route 14 in Washougal should expect delays and plan to use an alternate route in the coming weeks.
Beginning on Fri., June 7, crews working for WSDOT will close sections of 32nd Street over two weekends to install utilities across SR 14 and to prepare for roundabout construction.
Beginning at 10 p.m. Fri., June 7, until 5 a.m. Mon., June 10
• Crews will close 32nd Street south of SR 14.
• During the closure, travelers cannot turn left onto SR 14 from either direction of travel on 32nd Street, except freight traffic will be flagged from 32nd Street north of SR 14 through the intersection onto eastbound SR 14.
Beginning at 10 p.m. Fri., June 14, until 5 a.m. Mon., June 17
• Crews will close 32nd Street north of SR 14 up to Addy Street.
• During the closure, travelers cannot turn left onto SR 14 from either direction of travel on 32nd Street, except freight traffic will be flagged from 32nd Street south of SR 14 through the intersection onto westbound SR 14.
During the closures, crews will remove traffic islands within the intersection, install casing for a future city waterline and fiber conduit across the highway.
Please slow down and use caution through the work zone, as traffic on the highway will be in a temporary configuration. Travelers should expect delays through the construction area and plan to use an alternate route.
When planning your alternate route, please note that crews working for the city of Washougal will close Washougal River Road/15th Street for roadway improvements between E Street and the bridge over the Washougal River, daily from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., beginning on Mon., June 3 to Fri., June 21.
