A number of highway upgrades are coming to U.S. Highway 101 between Big Lagoon and Orick. Beginning Sunday, 7/16, our contractors will begin applying a new rubberized asphalt overlay, installing/upgrading ADA facilities for improved access, improving signage, and adding shoulder backing to approximately 16 miles of U.S. Highway 101.
Work will take place overnight. One-way traffic control will be in effect at the work sites, and motorists should anticipate 15-minute delays between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings. The project is expected to be completed towards the end of October.
