16 Jul

Status report from Washington Department of Transportation for SR 14 work — and closures — between Bingen and Home Valley.

“Crews continue drilling and rock bolt installation above SR 14 just east of Dog Mountain. Rock bolts help stabilize slopes by transferring the burden of weight from the exterior of the rock mass to its confined, more stable interior. They can also help support cable netting draped over the rock face.
