Hurricane Ridge Road work continues

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Road work continues on Hurricane Ridge Road, creating delays of up to 10 minutes for drivers.

The work to rehabilitate the first five miles of Hurricane Ridge Road from the intersection with Mount Angeles Road to the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station began April 9 and is expected to continue for five months.

The road work will include utility work, pavement rehabilitation, culvert installation, guardrail installation, and paving. Drivers should expect delays of up to 20 minutes in both directions during weekday work hours.

Flaggers and pilot cars will guide drivers through the active construction areas and temporary traffic signs and devices will be installed for weekend and evening travel as needed.

The $6.9 million road rehabilitation project is a partnership between the National Park Service, the Federal Highway Administration and Washington State contractor Columbia Pacific Construction, Inc. of Woodland.
