RAYMOND - The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) begins construction Monday, July 6 on a project to pave US 101 and improve Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) facilities in Raymond.
The US 101, SR 6 to Grays Harbor County Line paving project was awarded May 26 to Granite Construction Company with a bid of $2.8 million. The project resurfaces nearly nine miles of US 101 between SR 6 in Raymond and the Grays Harbor County line (mile posts 58.49 to 67.18) and brings sidewalk ramps in Raymond up to current ADA standards.
Throughout construction, drivers on US 101 will encounter daytime single-lane closures with flaggers for paving operations. Drivers may also encounter pilot car operations on some sections of US 101.
Crews will also begin improvements to sidewalk ramps in Raymond the week of July 6. Temporary facilities will be available throughout construction.
Paving work begins at the northern end of the project area and crews will work their way south. Paving operations in the city of Raymond begin in August, and drivers will be directed to use local detours as crews work through a series of closures on US 101. Commercial Street and Franklin Street in Raymond will remain open.
This project is scheduled for completion in October. WSDOT will continue to inform the public of traffic impacts as work progresses.
