Repair work is on the radar for Highway 305 guardrail

The crumpled guard rail on Highway 305 at Hidden Cove Road — mangled by a car crash earlier this year — is in the process of being added to scheduled highway repair work, according to Doug Adamson, spokesman for the Washington Department of Transportation.

Last year, the guard rail on the opposite side of the highway was replaced after a section of that railing was also hit by a car.

Adamson said the repair work may cost around $3,400, according to a rough estimate.

He also said the cost of the new guardrail may not be covered by the public. Adamson noted that WSDOT “regularly pursues reimbursement from the party or parties responsible for causing damage to state infrastructure,” such as guardrails.
