Why is WSDOT completing emergency repairs to SR 4, west of Naselle...
A portion of State Route 4 was damaged when a culvert collapsed on Monday, Jan. 5, 2015, due to heavy rains.

Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation built a temporary bypass road.

This will allow traffic to move through the area, at a reduced speed, while permanent repairs to the highway and the culvert are being made.

The End Result
The new culvert will restore travel on State Route 4 West of Naselle at milepost 3.1.

Project Benefits
This project will rebuild the damaged highway and replace the culvert.

What is the project timeline?
Jan. 2015: Heavy rains and flooding washed out the culvert
July 2015: Construction began to rebuild the culvert.
Sept. 2015: Construction work was completed and the roadway is opened up to traffic.
