WSDOT crews to put new US Highway 101 turn lane at Louella Road

WSDOT will be creating a new left turn lane on to Louella Road Sept. 15 and 16

Maintenance crews from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will be creating a new left turn lane onto Louella Road Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 15 and 16.

The crews will have one-way alternating traffic for installation of the new turn-lane from 8 p.m.-6 a.m. both days.

Drivers are encouraged to plan extra travel time to reach their destinations, especially during morning hours.

The work is weather-dependent, state officials note, and could be rescheduled.

The new turn lane is the result of a WSDOT cost-effective effort to improve traffic flow and reduce the potential for collisions, state officials said.

Travelers can find the latest information on the WSDOT app ( and by following the WSDOT regional Twitter feed (
