SR 107 - Chehalis River Bridge - Structure Rehabilitation

Project news

  • View construction progress photos
  • Drivers will encounter one-way alternating traffic with a temporary signal through fall of 2020 as crews rehabilitate the bridge.  The crossing will remain open during construction. Travelers should expect occasional night and full weekend closures during construction. Any scheduled bridge closures will be announced in advance. Drivers should also be aware of nearby work occuring on US 101 at Cosi Hill

Why is WSDOT rehabilitating the SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge?
The 1958 SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge located south of Montesano in Grays Harbor county is in need of repairs. This project will replace the timber on the south approach to the bridge, install modern safety rails, and paint the steel structure on the bridge.

The End Result
A rehabilitated SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge will reduce maintenance costs and bring the south end of the bridge approach up to current standards. New paint will help preserve and protect the bridge against corrosion.

Needs & benefits

  • Reduce maintenance frequency and costs by replacing the deteriorated timber approach trestle with a concrete structure.
  • Reduces severity of collisions by installing modern traffic barriers and guardrail.
  • Preserves the steel trestle by painting.
