Last week, Interwest Construction Inc. (ICI) finished tying the rebar, building the formwork, and then placed the concrete for the wing-walls of the Canyon Creek bridge. ICI also continued the construction of the Engineered Log Jams (ELJs) along the bank of the Hoh River at approximately MP 4.5 on Upper Hoh Road.
This week, ICI will begin backfilling the approaches to the Canyon Creek bridge, constructing the grade for the new alignment of the road. ICI will also continue constructing the ELJs at MP 4.5.
Impacts to Traffic:
• There following work zones can be expected between MP 3 and MP 11 on Upper Hoh Road:
MP 4.5: Temporary Traffic Signals or Flaggers for ELJ construction.
MP 10: Temporary Traffic Signals for construction of Canyon Creek Bridge
• Travelers should expect delays at each of these locations, up to a total of 30 minutes per passage through the project corridor Mon. through Fri., 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
• Olympic National Park and businesses along Upper Hoh Road will remain accessible at all times during construction.
