US 101 - Old Gardiner Rd to N of W Uncas Rd – Paving & Bridge Deck Repair

Project news

  • Travelers can expect overnight single lane closures each weekday beginning early spring 2019 through late summer until work is complete. During the overnight closures, drivers will follow a pilot car through the work zone.
  • Late night ferry riders or those traveling across the State Route 104 Hood Canal Bridge should plan extra time to reach their destinations.
  • Travelers are encouraged to sign up for email alerts.

Overview

Crews will repave 8-miles of US 101 east of the Clallam-Jefferson County line near Port Discovery to the US 101/SR 104 interchange. Repaving the highway surface helps reduce potholes and wheel ruts, making for a smoother, safer ride for travelers.

In addition to repaving the highway, WSDOT will make bridge deck repairs to Salmon Creek Bridge and Snow Creek Bridge. This will reduce the need for emergency repairs and overall maintenance costs.

To minimize the impact to traffic, most of the work will take place during overnight hours each Sunday through Thursday. Travelers will encounter one-way alternating traffic controlled by a pilot car through the work zone.
