Bridge replacement will detour Vader traffic

    The Lacamas Creek Bridge on State Route 506 a.k.a. Toledo-Vader Road will be replaced this summer, beginning in June, according to the Washington State Dept. of Transportation.

    Traffic will use a detour route on South Military Road until the bridge is reopened this winter.

    The timber bridge was built in 1951. The new bridge will be wider and made of concrete. For more information on this project, visit:
