US 101 - Hoh River Erosion Site #2 - Complete October 2014

WSDOT built engineered log jams in the Hoh River, adjacent to US 101 in Jefferson County, to prevent river bank erosion associated with flooding.


How you benefit

Improves safety
The engineered log jams will reduce the likelihood of emergency closures and repairs of US 101 near the Hoh River south of Forks due to erosion.

Protects environment
This project created a more desirable and natural river habitat for fish that includes large woody debris.
WSDOT is committed to preserving the environment and makes every effort to assess and minimize environmental impacts from its projects.
