Winlock City Council has had so many meetings over the past week, it's difficult to keep track. They had their council meeting on Monday, December 10, when the City of Winlock was served with a three (3) million dollar lawsuit by Sam Patrick.
The Washington State Department of Transportation released their proposed 2019-2022 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) outline and has named six proposed projects in Pacific County.
Mill Creek Bridge
The bridge on Mill Creek near the juncture of SR 6 and Camp One Road is proposed to be completely replaced as the state has deemed the bridge structurally obsolete. The project is estimated to cost just over $6 million.
Mill Creek Road has been the scene of several projects over the past few years. Earlier in 2018 the river eroded the roadway and had to be repaired during the spring. Pacific County Public Works also applied for a special permit to remove sediment in the river allowing the river to flow away from the roadway.
The entire Washington coast was placed under another High Wind Warning by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency on Monday, December 17. The storm came on the heels of a storm that battered portions of Washington the week prior knocking trees down and cutting off power to others. The focus now shifts to flooding potential.
Raymond and South Bend were issued high wind warnings estimating wind speeds of 30-40 mph with gust up to 60 mph. Heavy rains were also expected with 3-6 inches of rainfall over two days expected for the area. The storm made its landfall around noon on Monday and began affecting the northern areas of Pacific County around 3:00 p.m. and lasted into the late evening.
While windy, the area never experienced the gusty winds that were forecasted and saw peak gusts just above 50 mph for a short time. Rain did come down heavy at times and the Raymond roundabout was inundated with water for a few hours after the drainage ditch filled with water and had a hard time draining to the river.
