Work resumes on Highway 101 at Lake Crescent after Labor Day holiday

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK— Beginning Tuesday, after the Labor Day holiday, drivers can expect up to half-hour delays during weekday work hours on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent.

Strider Construction will begin work on a mechanically-stabilized earth (MSE) wall near milepost 223, which is west of the Lake Crescent Lodge area, said Penny Wagner, Olympic National Park spokeswoman, in a news release.

A temporary traffic signal will be installed at this location, she said. The MSE wall work is expected to last one week.

Ditch reconditioning also will be underway in the project zone. Drivers are asked to watch for flaggers controlling traffic. Upcoming work includes striping and guardrail installation.

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.
