Look for traffic impacts from sewer projects in both Kelso and Longview; starting today, work starts on replacement of an aging sewer line in northwest Kelso, working along Northwest 3rd Avenue. Inspection, marking and prep work is already under way, and the main work of excavation and replacement will start today. The project is expected to last into mid-October. There could be traffic disruptions connected to the project; detours will be posted.
As part of the West Longview Sewer Diversion Project, Prudential Boulevard will be closed at Crocker Avenue for the next couple of weeks. The closure on the main road through the Mint Farm Industrial Park is set to begin today, and will be in place through September 17th. Access to local businesses in the area will be maintained. Use alternate routes to avoid delays.
