Expect Paving On US 101 At Rock Crusher Hill
ARTIC – Drivers traveling on US 101 near Artic may encounter one-way alternating traffic while crews repave a section of highway at milepost 72.6 next week. The work is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 7. The work is weather-dependent and could be rescheduled. The road surface will be rehabilitated after heavy rains and earth movement last March caused a section of the roadway to slump about six inches. At that time, crews made temporary repairs to the slide-prone section of US 101.This section of highway is located on an active landslide and has a history of pavement settlement.
Work is underway to design a permanent repair, however construction funds have yet to be identified. Motorists should expect future roadway slumping to occur until permanent repairs are completed. Until then, WSDOT maintenance crews will closely monitor the road and perform spot repairs as needed.
