The public is invited to attend an open house about a plan to replace the Chamber Way bridge above Interstate 5 in Chehalis, according to the state Department of Transportation.

That’s the freeway overpass that was hit by semitrailers over the summer.

The open house will discuss the timeline for building a new four-lane overpass at least 16 feet, 6 inches above the freeway. Construction is expected to begin next summer.

The meeting is 4-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Holiday Inn Express, 730 NW Liberty Place, Chehalis.
