Lanes to shift on Highway 101 at Elwha River Bridge

PORT ANGELES – Westbound travelers using the US 101 Elwha River Bridge on U.S. Highway 101 will see new temporary changes to the roadway on Monday.

At 10 a.m. Monday, crews will shift the westbound lane near Olympic Hot Springs Road. The passing lane will be closed. Westbound travelers will be able to turn left onto Olympic Hot Springs Road.

The temporary changes will create a new work zone for contractor crews working on the Elwha River Bridge replacement project. Crews will build a portion of the roadway approach for the new bridge.

The changes will remain in place until late spring 2024.

A vehicle makes its way across the Elwha River Bridge west of Port Angeles on Friday morning as a plume of wildfire smoke filters down the river valley. The smoke, which originated from seven named wildfires near the center of Olympic National Park, settled through the Elwha drainage to lower elevations, creating hazardous air in lower portions of the valley and unhealthy conditions in surrounding areas.
