Drivers should plan for short delays for alternating single-lane traffic the week of Sept. 30 as Strider Construction will begin to mobilize equipment and set up traffic control devices to resume road work.

The remaining road work for the Lake Crescent Highway 101 Rehabilitation Project involves restoring the roadway width and shoulder area in front of the rock wall near milepost 229. The work will require traffic delays for alternating single-lane traffic as well as a series of four-hour delays set to begin Oct. 7.

The four-hour delays will follow a set schedule Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. until no longer needed. During these four-hour periods, Highway 101 eastbound from Forks will be open to the turn for Barnes Point where Lake Crescent Lodge is located. Highway 101 westbound from Port Angeles will remain open up to mile marker 232/East Beach Road. Travelers should plan ahead to drive through the construction zone before 9 a.m. or wait until after 1 p.m.

Outside of the four-hour delays, drivers should expect delays for alternating single-lane traffic Monday through Friday during work hours. After work hours and on weekends expect short delays for alternating single-lane traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals at the rock wall area.

Travelers to and from the western side of the peninsula can use State Route 112/113 as an alternate route during the delays. Drivers should be cautious of bicycle traffic on State Route 112. The roadway restoration work is anticipated to last four to six weeks.
