Traffic to shift lanes on US Highway 101 at Bagley Creek

PORT ANGELES — Eastbound traffic on U.S. Highway 101 will shift to the new bridge as early as Tuesday morning.

The timing of the change is dependent upon dry weather, according to a Department of Transportation press release.

Following the lane shift, eastbound travelers will use one lane on the new eastbound bridge; westbound traffic will continue to use one lane on the westbound bridge.

Work crews will finish the project by installing new guardrails, paving and other tasks.

The highway is expected to return to two-lane traffic in both directions by late fall.

The construction, which began in May 2020, is part of a $36 million dollar project to replace culverts at Bagley and Siebert creeks to improve fish passage.
