What's new this week?
Crews will be applying "shotcrete" to the slope near White Salmon next week. Shotcrete is a concrete or grout-like substance shot at high velocity onto either vertical or horizontal surfaces to help increase stability.
The material can damage vehicles, so drivers will be detoured on SR 141 through White Salmon and Bingen during shotcrete operations May 19-21.
