Chip sealing set for U.S. Highway 101 and state Highway 19

Several work zones in a multi-county chip-seal project across the Olympic Peninsula will see continued work along U.S. 101 and state Highway 19.

After the Independence Day weekend, beginning Tuesday, travelers can expect alternating conditions with a pilot car or flaggers on Highway 101 between mileposts 192 and 210.5 near Forks and between mileposts 231 and 235 near Lake Crescent, both in Clallam County; and on Highway 101 between mileposts 285.2 and 296.7 south of Discovery Bay and Highway 19, also known as Beaver Valley Road, between mileposts 0.1 and 9.5 near Chimacum, both in Jefferson County.

Crews have completed pavement repairs. Next up, crews will apply a protective surface prior to chip sealing. Chip sealing work will begin the week of July 12 and will continue through the month.

Doolittle Construction crews working for the state Department of Transportation continue this 60-mile chip seal and bridge deck repair effort along Highways 101 and 19. This highway preservation work is slated to wrap up in late summer.
