Dam removal prompts safety closures of road, campground
The Elwha Valley’s Whiskey Bend Road will close from 7 a.m.–5:30 p.m. daily from Monday-Friday, June 25-29, to allow safe passage for heavy truck traffic hauling material from the Glines Canyon Dam area.
The road reopens each day at 5:30 p.m. and remains open overnight to allow trailhead access before closing again at 7 a.m.
Altair Campground is closed from July 1-31 because of controlled blasts to lower the Glines Canyon Dam. The Glines Canyon Dam and the former Elwha Dam site are still active construction areas and are closed to all public entry.
Webcams of the dam removals are available through the Olympic National Park website at www.nps.gov/olym/or directly at www.video-monitoring.com/construction/olympic/js.htm.
