Chamber Way Repairs

Posted on 12th October 2017 at 09:05

Repairs plans for the damaged Chamber Way overpass are being disclosed, a process that will eventually involve full closures of the freeway in Chehalis. The Washington Department of Transportation says that both directions of I-5 will be diverted around the overpass, going from 11 pm next Monday night to 5 am on Tuesday. The closure is needed as new girders for a temporary overpass are installed. The overpass itself will be closed from 9 pm next Monday until 5 am on Tuesday. Once the temporary bridge is installed, work will begin on the permanent bridge replacement. The overpass was severely damaged in July of last year, when an over-height load damaged structural components on the underside of the bridge.
