What to expect

In Spring 2024, travelers who use US 101 near the Clallam-Jefferson County line can expect reduced speeds, shifted lanes and alternating conditions with flaggers or a temporary signal while construction is underway. Any highway closures will be announced in advance. 

US 101 at May Creek is currently 67% passable and in need for correction. Once complete, the work will increase fish habitat for salmon, coho, chinook and several other species.
