Bingen Point Underpass To Be Part Of Open House

The Washington State Department of Transportation has a proposed design for a new connection from Highway 14 to Bingen Point, and will show it at an open house in White Salmon next week.  Bart Treece of Washington DOT says the design would build a new route underneath the tracks to keep traffic moving with as minimal a footprint as possible that would impact property owners.  The 22-point-nine million dollar project is being by the Connecting Washington transportation package approved by the 2015 Legislature.  Treece adds a roundabout would be installed at the location.  The open house will be next Wednesday (December 13) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the White Salmon Valley Community Library.
