  • SR 4 road closures -- Mondays Through Thursdays

    SR 4 delays near Longview begin Monday, May 10

    Pre-scheduled 45-minute closures begin May 12 for up to three weeks

    LONGVIEW WSDOT and Granite Construction Company of Bellingham start work May 10 to bring down more than 150 yards of large rock, loose debris and unstable soil from the slope above SR 4, just west of the Germany Creek Bridge (milepost 50.2). This $340,000 slope stabilization project will reduce the risk of rocks falling onto the highway and improve the condition of the rock slope.

    Drivers can expect single-lane closures to begin Monday, May 10 as crews mobilize scaling equipment into the area. Full closures of SR 4 begin May 12. Contractor crews will close SR 4 for 45-minute durations between 8:15 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday for three weeks. Crews will open the highway for 15 minutes at the top of every hour to allow drivers safe passage through the work zone.

    Pre-scheduled closures of the highway will allow drivers to plan ahead and avoid long delays:

    Before 8:15 a.m. - OPEN
    8:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. - CLOSED
    9 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. - OPEN
    9:15 a.m. to 10 a.m. - CLOSED
    10 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. - OPEN
    10:15 a.m. to 11 a.m. - CLOSED
    11 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. - OPEN
    11:15 a.m. to 12 p.m. - CLOSED
    12 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. - OPEN
    12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. - CLOSED
    1 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. - OPEN
    1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. - CLOSED
    2 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. - OPEN
    2:15 p.m. to 3 p.m. - CLOSED
    3 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. - OPEN
    3:15 p.m. to 4 p.m. - CLOSED
    4 p.m. to 8:15 a.m. OPEN

    SR 4 will be open to two-lane traffic between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8:15 a.m., Monday through Thursday. No traffic impacts are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays during scaling operations.

    After the scaling work is complete, traffic will be reduced to a single lane, alternating directions on SR 4 while crews install rock anchors to hold large rocks in place and further stabilize the slope. Drivers should expect up to 20-minute delays during daylight hours, Monday through Thursday until the project is complete by the end of summer.

    WSDOT encourages drivers to plan ahead and avoid long delays by checking the WSDOT Weekly Travel Advisory, Travel Alerts or Project Web page, or by calling 5-1-1 or 1-800-695-ROAD from any phone to get up-to-date information once construction begins.
    The same would apply to Skyline.

    The Puget Island Ferry runs from US 30 in Westport, OR at a quarter past the hour and from the island on the hour.
