Multiple Projects on Area Roads Next Week

From Cowlitz County Public Works

Multiple projects are occurring for the upcoming week. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m in work zones.

Drivers will encounter slow moving paint striping trucks this weekend, August 5 – 7. Motorists encountering the lead buffer truck are asked to wait until the last truck has passed before entering the roadway. Drivers behind, or traveling opposite of, the painting operation should not cross the lane lines. If motorists do need to exit the roadway they should proceed slowly at a 90 degree angle. Paint drying times will depend on the weather, but it is generally dry within 5 minutes.

Paving, or overlay, has began today, August 5, 2011. Overlay creates a level driving surface. Areas paved in 2011 will generally receive a chip seal surface in 2012. The following areas will be paved in the upcoming week:

Kalama River Road
