Lane shift may be required at Siebert Creek site

PORT ANGELES — Westbound traffic on U.S.Highway 101 may shift to the new bridge over Siebert Creek as early as 10 a.m. Friday.

The lane shift requires dry weather and may be rescheduled.

Contractor work crews will finish the project by installing new guardrails, paving and other tasks.

The highway is expected to return to two-lane traffic in both directions at both the Siebert Creek work zone and the Bagley Creek zone by late fall.

The construction, which began in May 2020, is part of a $36 million dollar project to replace culverts at Bagley and Siebert creeks to improve fish passage.

Real-time traffic information is available at or by dialing 5-1-1.
