Beginning April 15 to May 23, four-hour delays are scheduled on Highway 101 at Lake Crescent from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Mondays through Thursdays.

This series of four-hour daytime delays is necessary in order to complete the work to restore the road width near milepost 229 by constructing a Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining wall. These longer delays are not permitted during the busy summer season between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

During these four-hour periods from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Highway 101 eastbound from Forks will be open to the turn for Barnes Point where Lake Crescent Lodge is located. Highway 101 westbound from Port Angeles will remain open up to mile marker 232/East Beach Road. Travelers to and from the western side of the peninsula can use State Route 112/113 as an alternate route during the delay.

Outside of the scheduled four-hour delays, drivers should continue to expect up to half-hour delays during weekday work hours.

Drivers can find updates and maps of the project area with current project information on the park website at The Federal Highway Administration website for this project is available at https:/
