Road closure forces delay of PDN, Forks Forum

Fallen trees that blocked U.S. Highway 101 on both sides of Lake Crescent halted delivery of Wednesday’s Peninsula Daily News and Forks Forum newspapers to the West End.

The State Patrol closed Highway 101 in both directions at milepost 215 near Heckel Road to milepost 231 just before 7 a.m. Wednesday and reopened them after about four hours.

Since newspaper delivery was not possible west of the closure, Wednesday’s Peninsula Daily News will be delivered with Thursday’s papers, if possible, to West End readers.

The Forks Forum, which is delivered through the U.S. Postal Service, will be delivered to the Post Office later than normal. The paper likely will arrive Friday.
