Morning closures set for Hurricane Ridge Road

Hurricane Ridge Road will close for five hours each morning for up to eight days to allow the Olympic National Park road crew to complete annual ditch clearing. From June 10-13 and June 17-20, the road will be closed to vehicle traffic at the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station between 6-11 a.m. each day. In recent years, the annual ditching project was accomplished without closing the road, as flaggers directed motorists through the one-lane work area. However, the loss of two seasonal road crew positions has reduced staff capacity and flaggers are not available this year.
