Delays expected near Kalaloch this week

KALALOCH — Girder deliveries for U.S. Highway 101 at Steamboat Creek near Kalaloch will require brief highway closures between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.

Contractor crews working for the state Department of Transportation will briefly stop traffic along Highway 101 in both directions several times during those hours, according to a press release.

The closures will occur several times between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21 through Friday, Oct. 23, for delivery of bridge girders to a construction site.

Drivers can expect delays of up to 15 minutes as bridge girders are delivered to a construction site.

Cranes will be stationed on closed lanes of Highway 101 and will lift girders from trucks briefly stopped in the travel lanes.

Rain will not affect the work, but unusually high winds could delay delivery of the girders, the state Department of Transportation said.

Crews are making progress on correcting three fish barriers along Highway 101 at Steamboat, Harlow and Fisher creeks for improved fish passage, DOT said.

Work at all three streams is expected to wrap up next fall.

This work is part of DOT’s Fish Barrier Removal Program, which identifies and removes barriers to fish caused by culverts under state highways.

Washington State Department of Agriculture entomologist Chris Looney looks at two of the dozens of Asian giant hornets he vacuumed from a nest in a nearby tree Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020, in Blaine, Wash. Scientists in Washington state discovered the first nest earlier in the week of so-called murder hornets in the United States and plan to wipe it out Saturday to protect native honeybees, officials said. Workers with the state Agriculture Department spent weeks searching, trapping and using dental floss to tie tracking devices to Asian giant hornets, which can deliver painful stings to people and spit venom but are the biggest threat to honeybees that farmers depend on to pollinate crops.
