Lake Crescent Highway Rehab Project
Highway:

Description: The National Park Service & Federal Highway Administration will rehabilitate 12 miles of Highway 101 around Lake Crescent and 4 miles of East Beach Road to address safety and long‐term maintenance issues.
Work schedule: Work on the Lake Crescent US 101 project is officially shutdown for winter. Travelers around Lake Crescent will not encounter any road work, traffic lights or delays associated with the project until it resumes in mid-March.

There are no traffic signals in place, however, the lanes in that section around milepost 229 will be narrower than usual until further road work is completed.  A reduced speed limit is in effect in that area and road signs warn drivers of the narrow lanes.

The rock scaling and bolting work is now complete. Both lanes in the rock wall area were paved to repair road damage and that section is restored to two lanes.

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.
