U.S. Highway 101 Lake Crescent & East Beach Road Rehabilitation/EA
Repair work is being proposed for 12.3 miles of U.S. Highway 101 adjacent to Lake Crescent to address safety and long-term maintenance concerns. Additional project purposes are to improve deteriorated pavement conditions on East Beach Road and in the Sol Duc parking area.
U.S. Highway 101 in the park currently includes substandard and/or failing guardrail, roadside hazards such as missing drop inlet grates, rock fall hazards, and poor pavement conditions (potholes, edge failures, poor surfacing). Rehabilitation is needed to improve subsurface pavement conditions, apply new pavement, stabilize cut and fill slopes, improve drainage, improve and replace guardrails, mitigate rockfall hazards, and improve intersections while protecting natural, cultural, and recreational resources within Olympic National Park.
