US 101 - 5th St to S H St Paving and ADA Compliance

Project news

  • All work is on winter suspension. Work will resume spring of 2021. 
  • Since last February, Rognlin’s Inc. crews have been making pavement repairs, grinding out damaged asphalt and addressing approximately 150 ramps and sidewalks for improvements for those who walk or roll. Crews plan to pave the eastbound US 101 couplet between Hoquiam and Aberdeen next summer when weather improves. 
  • The project includes expansion joint repairs to the US 101 Hoquiam River Simpson Avenue Bridge which were completed September of 2020.

Overview 

What travelers can expect:

  • Project work is anticipated to suspend in late October 2020, until paving can be started in the Spring of 2021.
  • All associated sidewalk and ramp work is now complete.
  • Pavement repairs, including grinding, will be done at night when traffic volumes are lower. This will occur mid-summer and last approximately eight weeks. Drivers should expect a single lane closure during this phase.
