Beginning Mon. June 26, contractor crews will close one to two lanes each evening between 9 p.m.–5 a.m. for bridge repair work
VANCOUVER – Nighttime Interstate 205 travelers in Southwest Washington should plan for overnight work zones and additional travel time for the next few months.
Starting Monday, June 26, Washington State Department of Transportation’s contactor, Granite Construction, will resume joint rehabilitation work on several bridges on I-205 by replacing concrete headers and resealing the joints. Doing this work will provide a smoother transition between the highway and the bridge approaches.
What to expect:
Beginning Monday, June 26, contractor crews will close one to two lanes each evening between 9 p.m. – 5 a.m. for bridge repair work at these locations:
- Northbound and southbound I-205 over State Route 14 at milepost 27.24
- Northbound and southbound I-205 over Burton Road at milepost 27.79
- Northbound and southbound I-205 over Salmon Creek Avenue at milepost 36.00
Additionally, intermittent on- and off-ramp closures will occur. This work is weather dependent and scheduled to change at any time.
