Clallam County

US 101 - Elwha River Bridge
Highway:
US 101 Region: Olympic County: Clallam Location: Milepost(s) 238.7 to 239.5
Contact: JoAnn Schueler, 360-357-2798
Description: WSDOT will replace the 1926, 388-foot concrete arch bridge over the Elwha River after successfully serving the community for more than 90 years in Clallam County. The new bridge will be 40 feet wide and sport two 12-foot lanes and two-8 foot shoulders. Additionally, improvements will be made to the US 101/Hot Springs Road intersection alignment including added illumination and turn lanes. View our latest video spotlighting the proposed new crossing. Travelers are encouraged to stay informed with bridge inspections or construction announcements.

US 101 - Bagley Creek and Siebert Creek - Remove Fish Barriers

Highway: US 101 Region: Olympic County: Clallam Location: Milepost(s) 253 to 257.3
Contact: Dan McKernan, 360-565-0623
Description: Crews will remove and replace outdated culverts beneath US 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim at Bagley and Siebert Creeks. Crews aim to remove five existing culverts; two that run underneath both directions of the US 101 at Bagley and Siebert Creeks, two along James Page Road and one along South Bagley Creek Road as part of WSDOT’s efforts to improve fish migration impeded by state highways. The work shifts the two westbound lanes to the existing eastbound lanes, so there is one lane of travel in each direction, to allow the construction of a new bridge over both creeks. Once this is complete, all traffic will switch to the westbound lanes to allow completion of the bridge in the eastbound lanes over Bagley Creek. Travelers are encouraged to sign up for email alerts concerning WSDOT construction activities in Clallam County.
Work Schedule: 

  • Weekday, daytime construction through fall of 2021. Any road closures will be announced in advance.
  • Drivers will encounter reduced speeds and shifted lanes in both directions around-the-clock through project completion.
  • The speed limit is temporarily reduced from 55 mph to 45 mph through project completion. The signs will be enforceable as soon as they are posted.

Grays Harbor County

US 101/N of SR 107 - Stabilize Slope
Highway: US 101 Region: Olympic County: Grays Harbor Location: Milepost(s) 78.9 to 79
Contact: Karen Boone, 360-538-8500
Description: This section of US 101, also known as Cosi Hill, has a history of slides reoccurring under the highway. It has become not cost-effective to continue repaving the roadway until further earthwork can be done. This project aims to address just that. Crews drilled nearly 500 6' diameter holes up to 55' deep and filled remaining sections with rock in an effort to stabilize this stretch of highway. 
Work Schedule:  A single lane is each direction will remain open to drivers through fall of 2020 while slope stabilization efforts are underway. The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph. A majority of the work takes place off the roadway, however construction equipment at times will enter/exit the roadway. 

  • Beginning 4 a.m. Monday, June 1 through 3:30 p.m. Friday, June 5, US 101 at Cosi Hill will be closed for paving. A signed detour will be in place for travelers using Blue Slough Road. Last October, crews were able to successfully patch a portion to the roadway that settled. That repair work was intended to hold over until better weather conditions allow for a complete rebuild of the roadway. Now that weather has improved, they aim to permanently address the driving surface. The detour route is approximately a 10-minute commute.

Highway: US 101 Region: Olympic County: Grays Harbor Location: Milepost(s) 78.6
Contact: Brent Schiller, 360-538-8530
Description: One-way alternating traffic in place following several feet of recent roadway settlement. WSDOT will continue to monitor the roadway for further settlement issues. Loads are restricted to no wider than 14 feet to provide clearance. A contract to repair the roadway following widespread damages throughout Washington due to natural disaster is currently underway. A timeline for permanent repairs has not been shared yet.
Work Schedule: Around-the-clock until further notice.

  • An emergency repair contract to repair the highway is underway. Until the roadway can be addressed, one-way alternating traffic will remain in effect until further notice. WSDOT will provide notice when a contract is available for advertisement and when construction may occur.

SR 107 - Chehalis River Bridge - Structural Rehabilitation and Bridge Painting 
Highway:
US 12 Region: Olympic County: Grays Harbor Location: Milepost(s) 6.9
Contact: Karen Boone, 360-538-8500
Description: This project replaces damaged and deteriorating timber on the south approach of the 1958 SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge near Montesano. Crews will install modern safety rails and paint the entire steel surface to protect against corrosion. A rehabilitated SR 107 Chehalis River Bridge will reduce maintenance costs and bring the south end of the bridge approach up to current standards. Project is scheduled to wrap up spring of 2021.

WSDOT will allow Rognlin's Inc. crews up to three weekend closures (which will be announced in advance) to conduct deck repairs and raise the arched portals on the existing steel structure. To do this work, the roadway will need to be completely closed to traffic. During any scheduled closure, vehicles will be detoured along with overweight and overheight vehicles using US 101 and US 12.  

Around the clock

  • The speed limit has been reduced from 40 mph to 25 mph between milepost 6.9 and 7.1.
  • No oversized loads on the bridge with a width restriction of 9 feet maximum.

Description: Travelers can expect weekday, daytime shoulder closures as crews reconstruct sidewalks and repave a nearly four-mile stretch of US 101 between Aberdeen and Hoquiam. Pavement repairs will be done at night when traffic volumes are lower. When paving occurs, drivers should expect single lane closures through the work zone. In addition, crews will replace worn expansion joints on the US 101 Hoquiam River Simpson Avenue Bridge. All work is expected to wrap up in spring of 2021.
