US 101 roadwork between Hoquiam and Humptulips heading toward completion

Efforts to remove multiple barriers to fish under US 101 in Grays Harbor County will soon reach key milestones. People currently use one-lane bypass roads around three separate work zones between Hoquiam and Humptulips.


Beginning Monday, Sept. 11, crews will begin a month-long effort to return traffic to the highway at each location.

Traffic returned to original highway is scheduled for:

  • Monday, Sept. 11 – North of Youmans Road at milepost 103.6
  • Wednesday, Sept 20 – North of McNutt Road at milepost 111.3
  • Friday, Sept. 22 – North of Youmans Road at milepost 102.9

The bypass roads kept people moving as crews excavated the highway to replace culverts. Each culvert was a barrier to fish.

People will continue to see one-way alternating traffic at all three locations and a reduced speed limit after traffic is returned to the highway. The speed limit will be restored by the end of September. After all other work is completed, both lanes will reopen around the clock.

During summer 2023, this project removed six barriers to fish under US 101.
