Final work to resurface Highways 101, 19 scheduled

CHIMACUM — Starting Monday, crews working for the state Department of Transportation will begin installing the finishing touches on resurfacing portions of U.S. Highway 101 and a section of state Highway 19.

From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each Monday through Friday until Sept. 30, travelers will see work activity at the following locations:

• Highway 19 (Beaver Valley Road) — between mileposts 0.1 and 9.5 near Chimacum in Jefferson County.

• U.S. 101 — between mileposts 285 and 297 south of Discovery Bay in Jefferson County.

• U.S. 101 — between mileposts 194 to 206 north of Forks in Clallam County.

• U.S. 101 — near Lake Crescent in Clallam County.

• U.S. 101 — between mileposts 325 and 339 near Lilliwaup in Mason County.

Crews will install new guideposts, raised pavement markings and road signage as part of this three-county highway preservation project.

Delays of up to 20 minutes are expected.

Crews will pull over as needed to let people pass.

This summer, nearly 60 miles of Highway 101 and Highway 19 were resurfaced across the Olympic Peninsula. This will complete the work.

Olympic Peninsula travelers are encouraged to sign up for email updates. Real-time traffic information is available on the WSDOT app and WSDOT regional Twitter feed.
