Eastbound SR 8 lane closures planned this week

Drivers using eastbound State Route 8 near McCleary will see alternating left- and right-lane closures this week as crews install new pavement markings.

Lane closures will occur between mileposts 4 and 10.5, just west of McCleary to the Grays Harbor/Thurston County line, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Aug. 11-14.

Drivers could experience delays and are advised to add time to reach their destinations.

The work will result in a smoother ride for drivers and pavement with a longer useful life.
