Southbound US 101 Paving Work

At 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, construction crews will close all lanes of southbound US 101 for two miles between Steamboat Island Road and State Route 8 to restripe a newly-paved section of highway. Motorists will be routed around the closure on a detour that uses State Routes 108 and 8. The detour is 26 miles long and adds about 30 minutes to drivers’ trips. Southbound US 101 will reopen by 4 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21. The closure is part of the final work in a project to pave and rehabilitate the right lane of southbound US 101 for a 10-mile stretch between SR 108 and Evergreen Parkway north of Olympia. The striping work is weather-dependent. In the event of inclement weather, the work and closures will be postponed.
