Clark County Public Works does not have an estimated timeline for reopening for any current closures
Recent rainfall has led to several closure decisions by Clark County Public Works that will impact area residents and travelers.
Here’s a look at the Clark County Public Works closures:
• Northeast Spurrel Road and Northeast Pup Creek Road closed until further notice due to down power lines.
• Bridge #201, which carries Northeast 156th Street over Salmon Creek in Brush Prairie. High water is impacting the bridge. Drivers should use Northeast Cramer Road and SR 503 to detour around the closure. A map of the detour route can be found at https://clark.wa.gov/sites/default/files/dept/files/public-works/Alternate%20Routes%20-%20Bridge%20201.pdf.
• Bridge #275, which carries Northeast 112th Avenue over Salmon Creek in Brush Prairie. High water is impacting the bridge. We do not have an estimated timeline for reopening as we cannot inspect the bridge’s condition until water levels sufficiently recede. No alternate route is available for this bridge, since it is located on a dead end.
• Bridge #299, which carries Northeast CC Landon Road over Yacolt Creek in Yacolt. High water is impacting the approach to the bridge. Drivers should use Northeast Parcel Avenue and Northeast Railroad Avenue to detour around the closure. A map of the detour route can be found at https://clark.wa.gov/media/document/91161.
• Portions of Lacamas Regional Park, near the Round Lake dam.
Clark County Public Works does not have an estimated timeline for reopening for any current closures. Water levels must sufficiently recede before we can inspect bridges, roads and trails for damage and determine when it is safe to reopen. Never enter closed areas.
Updates will be shared at Clark County Public Works on Public Works social media profiles and via additional news releases. Residents are encouraged to check the website for announcements of additional closures before they head out on the roads.
