Beginning summer 2017, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will resurface 27 miles of SR 6 between Pe Ell and the city of Raymond, and 25 miles of SR 105 from Raymond to Grays Harbor County.

The pavement on these two stretches of highway are nearing the end of their useful life. This project will preserve and extend the life of the asphalt, and provide a smoother ride for drivers.

Why is WSDOT resurfacing and chip sealing SR 6 and SR 105?
Last resurfaced in 2005, these two stretches of highway are showing signs of deterioration such as cracking and rutting.

Deferring this work would result in more expensive repairs.

What can drivers expect?
On working days between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., drivers should expect delays of up to 20 minutes as they alternative through the construction area by a pilot car. There will be a temporary speed limit reduction of 35 mph for safety and to reduce flying rock debris.

All work is weather dependent. 

The End Result
In addition to providing drivers a smoother ride, this work helps WSDOT preserve both SR 6 and SR 105, in Pacific County.
