Four-hour delays continue around Lake Crescent

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The work to restore the roadway width and shoulder area in front of the rock wall near milepost 229 on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent will continue this week with a series of four-hour delays.

The delays will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Outside of the four-hour delays, drivers should expect shorter delays around milepost 229 for alternating single-lane traffic during weekday work hours.

Concrete barriers are in place to reduce the work zone to one lane and temporary traffic signals are set up to control alternating single-lane traffic before/after work hours and on weekends, said Penny Wagner, Olympic National Park spokesperson.

During these four-hour periods, Highway 101 eastbound from Forks will be open to the turn for Barnes Point where Lake Crescent Lodge is located. Highway 101 westbound from Port Angeles will remain open up to mile marker 232/East Beach Road.

This is the last work in the three-year, $27.5 million Lake Crescent Highway 101 Rehabilitation Project by contractor Strider Construction.

The project is being managed collaboratively by the Federal Highway Administration and the National Park Service.
