Delays to resume on Highway 101 around Lake Crescent

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Drivers can expect delays of up to a half-hour for alternating single-lane traffic between mileposts 228 and 229 from Tuesday through Thursday this week.

A Federal Highways Administration crew will work on the roadway in front of the rock wall near milepost 229 where rock scaling work was completed last season, conducting a geotechnical survey by drilling in the roadway, said Penny Wagner, Olympic National Park spokeswoman, in a news release.

The work is needed for the design to restore the roadway in this section to the normal width, Wagner said.

Flaggers will control traffic in the small work zone to allow alternating single-lane traffic. The work does not involve drilling on the rock wall, only in the roadway.

Strider Construction is scheduled to resume road work the week of Aug. 27 with guardrail installation.

Through late September, road work is restricted to two hours after sunrise to two hours before sunset.

Strider Construction Inc. of Bellingham is in its second of three seasons of work to rehabilitate 12 miles of the highway around Lake Crescent in a project costing $27.5 million.

Construction seasons are from March through mid-November.
