This project will take three construction seasons to complete and will address safety and long-term maintenance issues.

Traffic Impacts on Highway 101 at Lake Crescent
The remaining road work for the three-year Lake Crescent Highway 101 Rehabilitation Project involves restoring the roadway width and shoulder area in front of the rock wall near milepost 229. The work requires traffic delays for alternating single-lane traffic as well as a series of four-hour delays which began October 7.
For the week of October 14
The work to restore the roadway width and shoulder area in front of the rock wall near milepost 229 will continue and the series of 4-hour delays will be in effect. Concrete barriers are in place which reduce the work zone to one lane and temporary traffic signals are set up to control alternating single-lane traffic before/after work hours and on weekends.
Series of Four-hour Delays Continue Mondays through Thursdays 9:00am - 1:00pm
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.
