Emergency repair work closes SR 411 near Longview
LONGVIEW – An emergency project to temporarily repair State Route 411 will shut down all lanes of the highway, Saturday, Jan. 19 and Sunday, Jan. 20.
Crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation will close SR 411 from Beacon Hill Road to Solomon Road, starting at 6 a.m. Saturday morning. Crews plan to reopen the roadway by 6 p.m. Sunday evening.
Drivers can take an alternate route by using Allen Street and Sparks Drive.
Water from a leaking culvert has saturated the soil that supports SR 411. Crews will drill through the highway, excavate the waterlogged soil and replace it with rock to support the weight of the roadway and its traffic.
Temporary repairs will stabilize the road until crews are able to determine the extent of damage and plan for permanent repairs.
