Construction activities

and upcoming work

Last week, Interwest Construction, Inc. (ICI) installed the guardrail and removed the temporary traffic control signals at the Canyon Creek bridge at MP 10. All that remains at this site is the installation of final permanent signage and delineators, which will occur this week.

Also this week, ICI will begin planting the willow and cottonwood pole plantings at the Engineered Log Jams (ELJs) constructed this year at MP 4.5 and MP 7.8. After this is complete, ICI will ensure all sites are prepared for winter shutdown and work will resume in Spring of 2022.

Impacts to Traffic

• The following work zones can be expected on Upper Hoh Road:

MP 4.5: Temporary Traffic Control Flaggers will be in place next week for planting work at the ELJs.

MP 10: The temporary traffic signals have been removed, and the road is open to two-way traffic. Expect minor impacts during sign installation next week.

• Travelers should expect minor to no delays at these locations

• Olympic National Park and businesses along Upper Hoh Road will remain accessible at all times during construction.
