PORT ANGELES — High waves over Ediz Hook Road on Wednesday prompted a temporary closure of the Hook while work crews cleared ocean debris from the street.
Several inches of standing water covered parts of the road from the Daishowa America paper mill to the end of the Hook.
A city of Port Angeles street crew closed the road at about 11:30 a.m. to all traffic except U.S. Coast Guard personnel and workers of Pan Fish ASA, who operate fish pens off the Hook.
Workers kept the road closed through the 12:27 p.m. high tide and reopened the road around 3:30 p.m.The rest of this story appears in the Friday/Saturday Peninsula Daily News Clallam County edition. Click on “Subscribe” to get the PDN delivered to your home or office.
