Construction continues on US 12 near Montesano as contractor crews for the Washington State Department of Transportation prepare to hit a key milestone in a fish barrier correction project this week.
From 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 25, crews will temporarily close the Devonshire Road on-ramp to westbound US 12. The closure allows crews to move traffic onto the newly constructed westbound lanes and complete work on the south side of the highway.
Crews are replacing an outdated culvert that runs under the highway with a 220-foot-long concrete box structure that will open two miles of potential fish habitat. The project is expected to be complete late fall.
Drivers are encouraged to plan extra time to reach their destinations.
Real-time traffic information is available on the WSDOT traffic app and on the Olympic Region Weekly Construction and Traffic Updates web page.
