Project Information

Budget Information

US 101 - Hoh River Erosion Site #2

Status

August 2014

  • Construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of fall. 
  • Impacts to traffic will be minimal.

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 will construct engineered log jams in the Hoh River, adjacent to US 101, to prevent river bank erosion associated with flooding.
 
In addition, this project improves fish habitat by 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 creates a more desirable and natural river habitat that includes large woody debris.

What is the project timeline?
June 2014 - construction
Fall 2014 – project complete
