Hoh Road Construction Continues

Construction Activities and Upcoming Work

This week, Interwest Construction, Inc. (ICI) continued delivering material and pre-assembling dolos-log bundles for the Engineered Log Jams (ELJs). Friday, July 15 marked the start of the allowable in-water work window in the Hoh River and ICI resumed constructing the Engineered Log Jams where they left off last summer, at MP 4.

Construction of these ELJs will continue downriver for roughly 1500 ft. at this location. This work will take place over the next month and a half until the in-water work window ends on Aug. 31. At the Tower Creek bridge, ICI constructed the formwork and rebar for the bridge diaphragms and the deck curbs.
