SR 14 - Marble Road Vicinity to Belle Center Road - Safety Improvements - Complete Fall 2013

This project helped to improve safety and mobility on State Route 14 between Marble and Belle Center roads in western Skamania County by straightening several curves, paving and replacing guardrail, and rebuilding the shoulder to accommodate slow-moving trucks.


How you benefit

Partnerships & cooperation
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 project did not impact any tribal resources since the work was entirely above ground on existing WSDOT right of way. For more information visit our WSDOT Tribal Liaison website.

WSDOT makes every effort to assess and minimize environmental impacts from our projects. A detailed analysis of the project’s environmental impacts was completed as part of the environmental documentation and environmental permitting processes.
