SR 16/Anderson Creek Tributary to Sinclar Inlet – Fish Barrier Removal
Michele Britton, 360-874-3010
TIME/DAYS: See below:
DESCRIPTION: Replace existing culverts that carry Anderson Creek beneath SR16, SR 166, and Anderson Hill Road to improve fish passage. 
EXPECT:  See below:

  • The ramp from eastbound State Route 16 to eastbound State Route 166 (Bay Street) near Gorst has been closed while crews continue a culvert-installation project at that location. WSDOT  implemented an unplanned closure after observing motorists purposefully driving around highway barricades on westbound SR 166, and traveling westbound in eastbound SR 166 lanes to access westbound SR 16.
  • When alerted to this driving behavior, WSDOT traffic engineers considered what alternatives could be employed to prevent the behavior. They came to the conclusion that reinstating a total closure was the only practical solution. The total closure of SR 166 at SR 16 will remain in place through the first half of August.
  • In early July, following a total closure of SR 166, WSDOT reopened access from eastbound SR 16 to eastbound SR 166. Westbound SR 166 remained closed. WSDOT started observing bold motorists making this unsafe and illegal maneuver to avoid using a signed detour and to save time.

Tips for Driving Through Work Zones

  • Pay attention - Driver inattention is the number one cause of work zone accidents.
  • Leave room between you and the car ahead of you - Most work zone accidents involve someone running into the car ahead of them. Drive defensively - be aware of what is happening around you.
  • Merge before you reach the work zone. 
  • Don't use cell phones or adjust your radio while driving through the work zone.
