Budget Information

US 101 - Hoh River Erosion Site #2


October 2014

  • Construction complete October, 2014. 


Why is WSDOT constructing engineered log jams along the Hoh River?
This section of US 101 is at risk for erosion from the Hoh River. An analysis of the lower Hoh River has identified the need for additional preventive measures at this location to avoid future emergency repairs.

The End Result
WSDOT built engineered log jams in the Hoh River, adjacent to US 101 to prevent river bank erosion associated with flooding.
In addition, this project improved fish habitat after adding large woody debris to the river.

Project Benefits

  • Safety - The engineered log jams will reduce the likelihood of of emergency closures and repairs due to erosion.
  • Environment - This project created a more desirable and natural river habitat that includes large woody debris.

What is the project timeline?
June 2014 - construction
