SPOKANE - Department of Transportation officials began escorting emergency and residential traffic through the flooded areas of State Route 206 Thursday as road repairs continued.

One 26 foot section of culvert was successfully installed Thursday and crews began work on additional pipe sections.

On Sunday, May 18th, snow runoff water overwhelmed culverts under the State Park equipment shed and the state highway undermining the roadway, and destroying about 1,000 feet of the route. 

WSDOT Maintenance crews, Mt. Spokane State Park personnel, Spokane County-directed work crews, and the contractor are also using sand bags to creat a headwall and channel protection at the inlet.

The contractor on-site is using several pieces of heavy equipment at the site, including a Caterpillar 330 track hoe, a vibratory roller, and a D8 Caterpillar bulldozer. The contractor has started rebuilding the roadway from the south. 

Once the water is diverted and sufficient roadway is rebuilt, large rocks will be hauled in and placed to protect the outfall of the new culvert.

The next steps include protecting the roadway along the creek and placing sufficient embankment to allow opening of the road to residents and emergency traffic only.

A project to fully rebuild the highway will be under construction and completed later this summer.
