What to expect

A section of SR 108 near West Hurley Waldrip Road is set to close around-the-clock to all traffic.

From 8 a.m. Monday, May 6 to 8 a.m. Monday, May 20, the highway will close at milepost 9.4.  See "Maps and Drawings" for the specific location and detour route. 

WSDOT has worked with the Shelton School District to accommodate students west of the closure. Starting the afternoon of Monday, May 6, school bus drivers will not have access to bus stop locations west of the closure. WSDOT will have a path through the construction zone. Crews will stop work during drop-off and pick-up times. Construction staff will escort students through the work zone. Parents and caregivers are welcome to accompany.  The highway will reopen 8 a.m. Monday, May 20. The bus will resume normal operations during the afternoon student drop-off.

This is the first of three closures planned on SR 108 between spring and fall. The second and third closures are not yet scheduled. WSDOT will give advance notification well before the remaining closures.

This project also includes work on US 101 near the Thurston/Mason County line. Unlike total closures on SR 108, crews will keep US 101 open to traffic. WSDOT will give advance notice before that work begins.
