Caution: Road work ahead

We hate to say it, but there’s a bit of road construction going on this summer in and around Olympic National Park, and it could delay some of your plans. But don’t fret! Most delays are less than 30 minutes. And while you’re waiting, you’ll get to take in some views you normally would drive right by. On Hurricane Ridge Road, crews are working on a five-month project to rehabilitate the road from Mount Angeles Road in Port Angeles to the Heart o’ the Hills entrance station. Drivers can expect delays of up to 20 minutes in both directions during weekday work hours. The federal project will include pavement rehabilitation, culvert installation, guardrail installation, paving and utility work on 5 miles of Hurricane Ridge Road. For Hurricane Ridge Road and weather updates, phone the Olympic National Park hotline at 360-565-3131. Work continues on U.S. Highway 101 around Lake Crescent. This is the second of three seasons of work to rehabilitate 12

miles of the highway around the lake. When planning to drive around Lake Crescent, here are three important reminders: • Expect up to half-hour delays Monday-Friday during work hours and slower travel through the construction zone. Expect short delays for temporary traffic signals after work hours and on weekends. • Work hours will vary according to season and day length. Through Sept. 21, road work is restricted to two hours after sunrise to two hours before sunset. • Work will occur on weekdays only and will not be scheduled on holidays or weekends. The work for 2018 includes erosion control, subexcavation, milling and paving beginning on the eastern end of Lake Crescent and working west.
