Highway 101 speed limit reduced between Queets and Kalaloch

Culvert removal work to aid fish passage coming up

QUEETS — Speed limits on U.S. Highway 101 between Queets and Kalaloch have been temporarily reduced.

The new speed limit signs were put in Tuesday and are expected to remain in effect through the completion of an upcoming construction project.

The state Department of Transportation reduced the speed limit from 60 mph to 25 mph between milepost 147.5 and 146.7 in advance of the project at Fisher and Harlow creeks.

The speed limit reduction is located in a roughly one-mile work zone where crews working for the Transportation will remove and replace outdated culverts with concrete girder bridges for improved fish passage.

The third culvert site at Steamboat Creek, just north of Kalaloch, will see a reduced speed limit from 55 mph to 25 mph later in August.

All three outdated culverts are expected to be complete by fall of 2020. The lowered speed limit is enforceable when the signs are posted.

Real-time traffic information is available on the WSDOT app. Advance information also is available on the Jefferson Construction and Traffic Update website at tinyurl.com/PDN-Traffic.
