US 101 repair

Contractor crews replaced a failing culvert and built a large retaining wall below US 101 to stabilize the hillside.

Contractor crews working for WSDOT built a large retaining wall and repaired a broken culvert on US 101 at milepost 316.5 to help stabilize a steep slope below the highway. Heavy rains during the week of Dec. 8, 2014 washed out approximately 75 feet of the northbound US 101 shoulder.

All lanes of US 101 at milepost 316.5 reopened to traffic and pre-construction speed limits were reinstated in October 2015.
