On July 10, 2017, the National Park Service and Federal Highway Administration began a project to rehabilitate 12 miles of Highway 101 around Lake Crescent and four miles of East Beach Road. This project will take three construction seasons to complete and will address safety and long-term maintenance issues.

Final year of three-year project nearing completion
August 12 - mid September: No traffic delays
Crews will be finishing clean up work throughout the 12-mile work zone the week of August 12 but will not require traffic delays. The remaining project work will begin in mid-September and involves restoring the roadway width in front of the rock wall near milepost 229.
Work Resumes in mid September
The work to restore the roadway width around milepost 229 was delayed to avoid impacts on summer traffic because it requires four-hour delays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Mondays through Thursdays. Outside the four-hour delays, drivers should expect flaggers and delays for alternating single-lane traffic. Temporary traffic signals will be in place after work hours and on weekends.
