Work begins Sept. 5; should be complete in October

SEKIU – Drivers could see delays on State Route 112 in Clallam County starting the first week of September.

On Tuesday, Sept. 5, Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews will begin to stabilize and repair two damaged sections of roadway located at the far west end of SR 112. During this project, crews will construct a rock buttress wall to stabilize the hillside supporting the road, and also resurface the roadway. The work will occur between mileposts 0.5 and 1.83.

“This work is a necessary part of maintaining the roadway,” said WSDOT Project Engineer Chris Bruning. “While we understand that another construction project on SR 112 this year may be frustrating for drivers, this project will ensure that the road continues to serve the traveling public for a long time to come.”

Starting Sept. 5, commuters will encounter around-the-clock, signal-controlled, one-way alternating traffic and a reduced speed limit at milepost 1.83. After work is completed there, crews will relocate to milepost 0.5. Drivers are encouraged to plan extra time into their commute in anticipation of this work.

Drivers can learn more about this project on the Weekly Construction and Traffic Updates webpage. The project is scheduled to be completed in October 2017.
