Expect single lane closures through late April

FORKS – Beginning this month, if the weather cooperates, US 101 travelers between Aberdeen and Forks should plan for construction to improve safety near Lower Hoh Road.

Starting Monday, March 16, Barcott Construction, LLC crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will begin building a westbound turn lane where drivers can decrease speeds from US 101 to Lower Hoh Road. Crews will also replace and relocate the illumination system closer to Lower Hoh Road for improved visibility. 

Flaggers will alternate traffic during daytime construction activities. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.

The project is expected to wrap up in late April.

Drivers are encouraged to sign up for WSDOT email alerts in Clallam and Jefferson counties and by following the WSDOT regional Twitter feed.
