Motorists should expect one lane of traffic and delays of up to 20 or 30 minutes on weekdays through Oct. 22.
MJ Hughs Construction, based in Vancouver, Wash., is the contractor for the $379,000 project.
Work will include repairs and maintenance of the tunnels' interior concrete liners and exterior portals, removal of vegetation and loose rock above the portals, application of concrete sealant and a new coat of reflective interior paint.
Hurricane Ridge Road will remain open throughout the work period, but traffic will be restricted to one lane through work zones to accommodate construction equipment and provide for public safety.
Preparatory work will begin Monday, and delays of up to 20 minutes should be expected through Friday, Aug. 30.
Rehabilitation work is scheduled to begin the following Tuesday, Sept. 3, and continue through Oct. 22. Delays of up to 30 minutes should be expected during construction.
Work will occur only on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.; no holiday or weekend work is scheduled.
Current road information is available by calling the park's information line at 360-565-3131 or clicking on “Plan Your Visit” at nps.gov/olym.
