Online open house on US 101 improvements in Sequim begins Jan. 27

SEQUIM – Community members can learn more about 14 potential improvements for US 101 on the east side of Sequim in an online open house.

Starting today, Jan. 27, the Washington State Department of Transportation is hosting a pre-design study on the section of highway between the Simdars Road interchange and Palo Alto Road through Thursday, Feb. 10.

Visitors to the open house are encouraged to leave feedback on potential roadway improvements that would support safety, mobility, economic development and multimodal connectivity. This includes new US 101 on- and off-ramps westbound at the Simdars Road interchange, as well as changes at three intersections – at Palo Alto Road, Whitefeather Way and Happy Valley Road.
