PORT ANGELES — Four-hour delays on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent will end Thursday and will resume Sept. 3.
Travelers should continue to expect half-hour delays Monday through Friday during work hours.
To avoid excessive impacts on summer traffic, the road restoration repairs will begin again after Labor Day.
The work will require 4-hour delays Monday through Thursday beginning Sept. 3.
This work is anticipated to be completed within the 20-day closure (five work weeks) allowed by the contract. Paving in the section of the rock wall also will be performed in the fall.
Remaining work that will occur this spring and summer includes sign replacement, paving the final 2-1/2” driving surface and striping. The sign crew will begin installing replacement signs this week.
Paving is set to begin June 3 and last for six to eight weeks depending on weather.
Weekday work hours are restricted to 2 hours after sunrise to 2 hours before sunset.
Traveling in the morning before 7:30 a.m. and after 6 p.m. can help travelers avoid the half-hour delays.
This project is being managed collaboratively by the Federal Highway Administration and the National Park Service.
