Daytime travelers using U.S. Highway 101 near Sequim may want to plan for additional commute time on Tuesday, Oct. 27 and Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Each day from 7 a.m.-5 p.m., a private contractor will remove trees of concern along U.S. Highway 101 near Louella Road.
Travelers will see the highway closed intermittently for up to 10 minutes at a time while the trees are removed. Crews will clear any backups before stopping traffic again for tree removal, state transportation officials said.
Safety concerns require this work to occur during daytime hours, they said.
