This project widened SR 14 from two lanes to four from the end of the West Camas Slough Bridge to just east of Union Street. The project also built a new bridge on the east end of Lady Island and a new split-diamond interchange at Union Street and 2nd Street.
This project slightly widened the West Camas Slough Bridge, but only enough to install median barriers in order to prevent cross-over collisions. This project also repaved the bridge for a smoother driving surface. The project did not fully widen the West Camas Slough Bridge. Why?
The project improved safety along SR 14 by adding median barriers throughout the project area, increasing capacity and reducing travel times to accommodate residential, commercial and industrial growth.
SR 14 will better serve current and future commuter traffic demands and better accommodate the movement of goods and services.
Provides safer access to SR 14, eliminates crossover collisions and reduces rear end collisions by consolidating access points on SR 14, installing median barrier, and by building a split diamond interchange in the vicinity of SR 14/SR 500 (Union Street) and 2nd Street.
Increases highway capacity and reduces delays to the traveling public.
| Economic Incentive
Accomodates future residential, commercial and industrial growth in the corridor area.
Partnerships & Cooperation
WSDOT worked with the cities of Camas and Washougal, the Port of Camas-Washougal, Clark County and the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council to make transportation improvements to State Route 14 between the NW Sixth Avenue interchange in Camas and Sixth Street in Washougal.
The Port of Camas/Washougal, the cities of Camas and Washougal, and Clark County have all played significant roles in obtaining funding for this project and they will continue to provide input throughout its development.
