Fallen trees, slide prompts closures of stretches of Peninsula roads

Stretches of two North Olympic Peninsula highways have been closed because of weather-related events, according to the State Patrol.

U.S. Highway 101 is closed in both directions at Milepost 315 in south Jefferson County because of downed power lines and trees on the road.

State Department of Transportation and Mason County Public Utility District crews are on scene, clearing the road.

Some customers in the south part of Jefferson County and in Mason County have lost electrical power, according to the district. Power is expected to be restored soon.

State Highway 112 is reduced to one lane at Milepost 4 near Neah Bay because of a mud slide.

No estimates are available for the reopening of those roads at this time.
