OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Subexcavation, milling and grinding will continue this week on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent.
Drivers should expect a total of half-hour stop time through the 12-mile project during weekday work hours, said Penny Wagner, Olympic National Park spokeswoman.
Flaggers, pilot cars or traffic signals will control traffic in multiple work zones.
After work hours and on weekends expect short delays for alternating single-lane traffic at the stoplights, Wagner said.
Work hours will vary according to season and day length, she said.
Until Sept. 21, road work is restricted to two hours after sunrise to two hours before sunset.
Work will occur on weekdays only and will not be scheduled on major holidays or weekends.
Heavy truck traffic should be expected though the work zone, she said.
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.
The work for 2018 begins on the eastern end of Lake Crescent and working west.
