Guardrail installation to begin on Highway 101 around Lake Crescent

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Guardrail installation is scheduled to begin Tuesday and drivers can expect up to half-hour delays during weekday work hours on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent.

The guardrail will be installed near milepost 231, said Penny Wagner, Olympic National Park spokeswoman.

Strider Construction will continue on a mechanically-stabilized earth (MSE) wall near milepost 223, which is west of the Lake Crescent Lodge area, Wagner said.

A temporary traffic signal is installed at this location. Drivers should expect short delays after hours and on the weekend for the signal, she said.

Upcoming work includes striping. Paving is complete for the 2018 construction season.

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.
