Why is WSDOT
widening US 101?
To increase safety and relieve congestion, we are widening the last remaining section of two-lane roadway between Sequim and Port Angeles.
The End Result
The end result is a continuous four-lane divided highway between Sequim and Port Angeles. The new four-lane roadway will have two lanes in each direction and a wide median.
In 1993, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) titled “SR 101 O’Brien Road to Palo Alto Road” identified four transportation improvement projects; this project is the third to be constructed.
- Increased safety. Wide median reduces the potential for head-on collisions. County road intersections improved to meet current highway safety standards. Left turns limited to county road intersections.
- Congestion relief. Additional lanes reduce traffic congestion and move more vehicles.
