OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Road repairs are planned in the Quinault Valley this month.
The Finley Creek Bridge on Quinault North Shore Road will be closed during daylight hours for repairs from Monday through Thursday.
Crews will replace wooden decking on the bridge between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. those four days, according to Olympic National Park.
North Shore Road will remain open, with alternative access to the upper portion of the road available via South Shore Road.
Graves Creek Road repairs will begin Sept. 19.
That’s when park crews will begin repairs to several washouts on the Quinault Valley roadway, which sustained damage during last winter’s storm and has been partially closed ever since.
During repairs, the road will be closed to all entry — including foot, bicycle and stock access.
The project and closure are anticipated to take two weeks, with the road scheduled to reopen in early October.
While Graves Creek Road is closed, there will be no access to the Graves Creek Trailhead.
Access to Enchanted Valley will be available only from trailheads on the park’s east side.
