- While reviewing the constructability of the project, significant issues were identified that would increase the projected cost of the project beyond its budgeted amount. Project construction is on hold while the project design team evaluates possible alternatives.
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.
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?
The project schedule will be revised based on choosing and designing a more constructible project design that will meet the same goals yet can be accomplished within the allowable budget.
