Lake Crescent Highway 101: Six-hour overnight closure scheduled for October 3, 2017 in the Eagle Creek area on the West End of Lake Crescent

In order to replace a culvert on Eagle Creek (MP 222), construction crews will be closing Highway 101 between Lake Crescent Road (MP228) and Camp David Jr Road (MP221). This closure will begin Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 10 p.m. and end Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 4 a.m. The six-hour closure is needed to set up a crane that will replace the Eagle Creek culverts on the west end of the lake with a larger box culvert. The box culvert will be able to better handle large volumes of water during significant rain events and allow the passage of fish.

During the overnight closure, eastbound traffic will have access to Camp David Jr. Road and westbound traffic will have access to the Barnes Point area at Lake Crescent Road. Eastbound traffic will not have access to the Barnes Point area. Travelers needing to get around the lake during the overnight closure should use SR 112 as an alternate. Emergency vehicles will follow protocols established during communication meetings.

During daylight hours, construction work will continue on other portions of the project outside the Eagle Creek area. Travelers on Highway 101 around Lake Crescent should continue to expect half-hour delays Monday through Friday during work hours. Traveling in the morning before 8:30 a.m. and after 5:45 p.m. may help travelers avoid the half-hour delays.
