Roadway resurfacing on SR 6 and SR 105 in Pacific County begins today

RAYMOND – A pair of highways leading in and out of Raymond are getting a fresh layer of pavement this summer, and people who use these routes should be prepared for slowdowns through the end of August.

Beginning Monday, June 19, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will repair damaged pavement and resurface 52 miles of State Routes 6 and 105 in Pacific County.

“Doing this work now will prevent additional cracking and rutting of these highways, which will extend the life of the roadway,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Colin Newell. “People who use these routes should plan their trips ahead and expect delays until the project is complete.”

Project details
WSDOT’s contractor, Doolittle Construction LLC will first repair damaged pavement before adding a new layer of oil-coated rock to chip seal the roadway on SR 6 between Pe Ell and Raymond, and on SR 105 between Raymond and the Grayland Beach State Park. This will provide a smoother ride for highway users and prevent deterioration for years.

Keeping traffic moving
During construction, traffic will alternate through the work zone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Delays of up to 20 minutes are expected. For safety, the speed limit through the area will be temporarily reduced from 55 mph to 35 mph during the chip sealing operation.

This weather-dependent work may be rescheduled due to rain.
