Road closures set this week in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Continuing work on the Race Street improvement project will necessitate the closure of Race Street between Eighth and 10th streets from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and from 7 p.m. Wednesday through 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Traffic will be detoured onto Washington Street during the closure; local access will be provided for residents, according to Port Angeles city officials.

Today’s closure will include preparation for replacing the water main. Water service will not be affected during this period.

The water main will be replaced during the overnight closure Wednesday night.

Water service will be interrupted for 33 households during the Wednesday night closure. Affected customers will be notified by Interwest Construction, Inc.

The $4.9 million project will install a shared-use trail for non-motorists, enhancements for pedestrian safety, water main replacement and the addition of stormwater infrastructure.

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.
