Plan ahead for increased drive times on US 101 near Shelton

Closure details 

Monday, Aug. 19 – November 2013 

• Contractor crews will close US 101 between East Brockdale Road and Skokomish Valley Road from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. each Monday through Friday night starting Monday, Aug. 19. Depending on progress, crews may also close the highway during nights on weekends. A signed detour will be in place to direct northbound and southbound traffic along State Route 106 back to US 101, adding 10.5 miles to the trip. 
• From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day starting Tuesday, Aug. 20, US 101 will be reduced to a single lane between East Eagle Point Drive (milepost 340) and Skokomish Valley Road. Drivers can expect one-way alternating traffic controlled by a traffic signal. 

Detour route for US 101 closure

The purpose of this project is to reduce the potential of slide-related closures of US 101. It also will increase motorists’ protection from hazards caused by falling debris.
