With rain and cooler temperatures in the forecast, resurfacing work along US 97 highway in Klickitat County is on hold until next year.

Over the summer, contractor crews completed planned pavement repair work along US 97 between Centerville Road near Goldendale and Ski Lodge Road in Klickitat County. Work to install the final top layer of asphalt will resume next spring when warm, dry weather returns. At that time, crews will also pave a section along East Simcoe Drive.

This $7.4 million dollar project is now scheduled for completion in fall 2022.
