Drivers traveling through US 12 in Oakville and a portion of US 101 near Rock Crusher Hill can expect delays and temporary reduced speed limits while crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation resurface the highways.

During the improvements, drivers will see one-way alternating traffic with flaggers, and are advised to be prepared for delays and drive through the construction zone with caution.
