Crews working west of Sequim will stop U.S. Highway 101 westbound traffic at Bagley Creek for periods of up to 15 minutes between 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10.
Traffic will be interrupted to deliver and place bridge girders, according to the state Department of Transportation. Closures will occur several times during the day.
Heavy equipment will lift several nearly 80-foot-long girders from the closed work zone. When this occurs, westbound travelers will be briefly stopped. Eastbound traffic will remain open.
Rain will not affect the work, but unusually high winds could delay delivery.
A project for fish-friendly passing has been underway at both Bagley and Siebert creeks since May. It is correcting five barriers for resident salmon and other species. Work is expected to wrap up by next fall.
The work is part of DOT’s Fish Barrier Removal Program, which identifies and removes barriers to fish caused by culverts under state highways.
