Traveler advisory: Watch for elk herd off U.S. 101 east of Sequim

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — A herd of elk has stationed itself near U.S. Highway 101 on Sequim's east side, prompting officials this morning to issue a warning that the elk might try to cross the road.

About 50 of the animals have been spotted via satellite tracking data in the narrow strip of woods between Highway 101 and the Olympic Discovery Trail just east of Whitefeather Way. That's about where U.S. 101 leaves the Sequim bypass area and begins its winding route along the toe of Sequim Bay.

The Clallam County Sheriff's Department, which issued the warning, notes that motorists should beware of flashing yellow elk-warning signs that are installed in either direction of U.S. 101 east of Sequim.
