Olympic Peninsula 2024 construction

Welcome to our online open house!

Travelers headed to Washington’s Pacific Ocean beaches or around the Olympic Peninsula will need to add extra travel time in 2024.

This year, our construction and maintenance crews will make improvements to sections of US 101, US 12 and State Routes 8, 19, 20, 104, 108 and 109 in Grays Harbor, Mason, Jefferson and Clallam counties.

To help people plan and navigate the dozens of work zones around the Olympic Peninsula, we invite you to explore this online open house.  We’ve highlighted construction projects that are sorted county. Some projects began in 2023, while others start fresh in 2024.

From McCleary and Elma to Hoquiam, Ocean Shores and out to Moclips, contractor crews will have multiple work zones set up. The work zones are located on SR 8, US 12 and SR 109. Travelers can expect reduced speeds, shifted lanes and some detours. All of this roadwork is for vital fish passage work.

Along US 101 north of Aberdeen all the way to Port Angeles and points beyond, travelers will see similar work zones for bridge replacement and fish barrier removal.

On SR 104, between US 101 and the Hood Canal Bridge, crews will build two new roundabouts for safety improvements. Further north on SR 116, crew will replace an outdated culvert that will require a detour.

Some of this work will cause minor slowdowns. There are a few projects that will require temporary road closures, detours, or extended wait times.

Work zone safety

The people in work zones are spouses, parents, children, siblings and friends. They all deserve to go home safe at the end of their shift. Please pay attention in work zones to help save lives. Slow down. Be kind. Pay attention. Stay calm. Plan ahead.
