Through this project, safety improvements were made and paving was completed in sections of I-5 between Castle Rock (milepost 50.12) and Winlock vicinity (milepost 64.85). Crews repaved the roadway to build pavement depth and increase the life of the pavement in this section of I-5. Crews also stabilized loose concrete panels underneath the existing asphalt near Toutle Hill.
In addition, crews made safety improvements to this section of I-5, such as guardrail upgrades, removal and regrading of land berms, relocated luminaries, updated permanent signing, striping and delineation to further improve this section of the corridor.
Why did WSDOT make safety improvements to this corridor?
This project was necessary in order to increase the life of the pavement on this heavily traveled section of I-5 and enhance safety to the traveling public.
Safety is WSDOT’s number one priority, and this stretch of I-5 often experiences heavy traffic volumes, which resulted in ruts in the pavement, loose concrete panels and increased wear and tear on the roadway; thus necessitating the need for improvements.
Other safety improvements made through this project were guardrail upgrades, removal and regrading of land berms, relocated luminaries, updated permanent signing, striping and delineation to further improve this section of the corridor.
This project enhances safety of the traveling public on I-5 with a newly repaved roadway to rebuild pavement depth, secure loose panels on the roadway, and made necessary safety improvements to guardrail, permanent signing and striping in this area.
Partnerships & Cooperation
WSDOT makes every effort to assess and minimize environmental impacts from our projects. A detailed analysis of the project’s environmental impacts will be completed, and, if necessary, an appropriate plan for prevention will be developed and documented as part of the environmental documentation and environmental permitting processes. These processes have not yet begun at this time. Additional information will be posted on this Web page as the environmental work progresses.
For environmental information specific to this project, please contact Barb Aberle at (360) 905-2186, or e-mail AberleB@wsdot.wa.gov.
At WSDOT we seek to address the concerns of the tribal nations using the process outlined in Section 106 of The National Historic Preservation Act and the WSDOT Tribal Consultation Policy adopted in 2003 by the Transportation Commission as part of the WSDOT Centennial Accord Plan.
This process is not applicable because the project does not impact tribal lands.
