For the week of October 21, the work to restore the roadway width and shoulder area in front of the rock wall near milepost 229 will continue with the series of 4-hour delays. Concrete barriers are in place which reduces the work zone to one lane and temporary traffic signals are set up to control alternating single-lane traffic before/after work hours and on weekends.

Crews have completed one out of five concrete pours to date. Three more concrete pours are scheduled during the series of 4-hour delays this week.

The series of 4-hour delays follow a set schedule from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays until no longer needed. During these 4-hour periods, Highway 101 eastbound from Forks is open to the turn for Barnes Point where Lake Crescent Lodge is located. Highway 101 westbound from Port Angeles is open up to mile marker 232/East Beach Road. Travelers to and from the western side of the peninsula can use State Route 112/113 as an alternate route during the delays.

Outside of the 4-hour delays, drivers should expect delays for a pilot car to lead alternating single-lane traffic through the work zone during weekday work hours. Traffic signals are in use before/after work hours and on weekends.
