NEAH BAY – Following several months of extreme weather, heavy rainfall, snowmelt and high tides, a 2-mile stretch of State Route 112 is set to receive much-needed repairs. Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 22, Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will alternate traffic between mileposts 0.9 and 2.1 approaching Neah Bay with flaggers.
Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. most weekdays until July 1. Work is based on available materials, crews, equipment, and winter storm response.
During the repairs, the speed limit will be temporarily reduced to 25 mph from 40 mph. The speed limit is enforceable once the signs are posted.
While there has been a reprieve from the wet and saturating conditions, much work remains to repair the highway. Crews will implement recommendations from WSDOT engineering geologists who surveyed the sites late January. Maintenance crews will conduct westbound shoulder repairs, rebuild the embankment, guardrail and make pavement repairs in multiple locations along the 2-mile stretch of highway.
Remember to slow down in work zones and watch for road crews.
