US Highway 101 to get overnight, single-lane closurse

Travelers can expect overnight, single-lane closures each weekday on US Highway 101 — from Gardiner Road to West Uncas Road — beginning as early as Monday, April 22, through late summer until work is complete.

Crews will repave eight miles of US Highway 101 east of the Clallam-Jefferson County line near Port Discovery to the US 101/SR 104 interchange.

Repaving the highway surface helps reduce potholes and wheel ruts, state transportation officials said.

In addition to repaving the highway, WSDOT will make bridge deck repairs to Salmon Creek Bridge and Snow Creek Bridge.

During the overnight closures, drivers will follow a pilot car through the work zone.

Late night ferry riders or those traveling across the State Route 104/Hood Canal Bridge should plan extra time to reach their destinations, state officials said.

Travelers are encouraged to sign up for email alerts at public.govdelivery.com/ accounts/WADOT/subscriber/new.

No work will take place from May 3-12 and July 19-21 for the Sequim Irrigation and Sequim Lavender Weekend festivals, transportation officials said.
