Crews reopened State Route 112 near Clallam Bay to two-way travel at 6 p.m. Monday, March 21. The highway closed on Monday, Nov. 15, 2021 due to massive landslide and regionwide flooding. The detour using Eagle Crest Way has been removed.
Crews are working to remove additional slide debris that fell in March. Crews will also begin efforts early May to install a new culvert across the bottom of the slide to convey surface water under the road. In addition to a new culvert, crews will finish final paving of the eastbound lane and make repairs to Eagle Crest Way. Bump, loose gravel and motorcycles use caution signs are in place. Flaggers will alternate travelers during work activities.
What to expect
Travelers can expect intermittent lane closures with flaggers while engineering geologists collect samples from the most recent roadway settlement issue or contractor crews replace guardrail.
Eagle Crest Way has been returned to the private property owners and is closed to the traveling public. WSDOT would like to thank travelers, residents, the Makah Tribe, and property owners of Eagle Crest Way for their cooperation and support during this project.
The initial slide began mid-November 2021, covering SR 112 near Clallam Bay was 275 feet wide and covered 325 feet of highway. Since then, another 300 feet of debris has fallen onto the highway and into the nearby water.
