SR 103 - US 101 to Stackpole Road - Chip Seal

Project news

This construction project was awarded to Doolittle Construction, LLC. on May 14, 2020.

Needs & benefits

This project involves repairing and resurfacing nearly 20-miles of highway along State Route 103 and a short section of US 101 in Pacific County through Seaview, Long Beach, Ocean Side, Ocean Park and Oysterville. During summer 2020, crews will strategically remove and replace patches of pavement, seal cracks along the road surface and coat sections of the highway with chip seal.

Portions of these highways were last paved in 1993 and 2006 and are in need of repair. Anywhere from 280 to 8300 vehicles a day travel on these stretches of roadway, depending on location, with the highest number of travelers going through Long Beach, and the lowest number of travelers along the northern most end of the Long Beach Peninsula. Repaving SR 103 and 101 will extend the  useful life of the roadway.

What should travelers expect during construction?

People should expect single lane closures with alternating one-way traffic, with delays of up to 20 minutes, on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during summer 2020. People who live along these stretches of highway may encounter delays where driveways and county roads intersect the state highway.
