FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The City is pleased to report that Beacon Hill will be re-opened to normal traffic today, Wednesday January 21st at 4:00 pm.
Flaggers will be used for traffic control to complete additional repairs so motorists are urged to use caution over the next few days and possibly into next week.
I personally want to thank Brian Thompson and the entire team at Rognlin’s Inc who lead the debris removal and roadway repairs. Considering where we were 16 days ago, it is a minor miracle to be open today. The City appreciates the assistance of all the other local contractors including Lakeside Industries, Quigg Brothers and Petersen Brothers, the dedicated City of Hoquiam public works employees, and private land owners who assisted with the repairs and access to both Beacon Hill and the emergency detour route. This was a team effort all the way around!
