On Thursday, the Washington Department of Transportation will host its open house in White Salmon to discuss upcoming closures on State Route 14.
In a $3.8 million project, the state is making safety improvements to the SR 14 corridor to reduce the risks of loose rocks, unstable soil, trees and other debris falling onto the roadway from the slopes above.
The work will necessitate closures along SR 14 between White Salmon (Milepost 63.6) and Dog Mountain (MP 53.8). When construction crews are working, the highway will be closed for two-hour periods.
The open house at the White Salmon Community Library is set for 4 p.m.-7 p.m. on Feb. 18, and will offer specific details about the project, closure schedules, and detour routes.
Citizens can drop in anytime during the three-hour event.
The highway closures are scheduled to begin in March.
