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. 

More information about this $3.5 million project can be found on WSDOT’s project web page

Homicide suspect chased from Shelton crime scene, one injured, one dead, one in custody

SHELTON, Wash. – At about 7:08 last night, Shelton Police were dispatched to a shooting in the 1900 block of South 1st Street. On arrival the Officers’ attention was directed to a vehicle that was fleeing the scene. Shelton Police tell KBKW a vehicle pursuit ensued for several blocks and terminated with the suspect crashing into a fence and then fleeing on foot. Officers engaged in a short foot pursuit, but ultimately caught up with the suspect and took him into custody.

At the original crime scene Officers located a victim who had sustained non-life threatening gunshot injuries to his hands and arms. He was transported to Mason General Hospital for treatment and later released. A second victim was found dead at the scene from apparent gunshot wounds.

Although the investigation is not yet complete, Detectives at this point have determined that the parties involved in this incident are familiar with each other. It appears that there was a disturbance at the residence earlier, after which the suspect left. He returned with a handgun at which point the shootings occurred.
