Beginning Monday, June 29, Rognlin’s Inc. crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will complete most work at an active slope stabilization project along US 101 at Cosi Hill near milepost 79 just south of Aberdeen. The work includes final pavement striping and sign installation.
- 7:00 a.m. Monday, June 29 through 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 30 – US 101 at Cosi Hill will be controlled by flaggers as crews alternate traffic through the work zone.
Travelers are encouraged not to cross “wet paint” signs. All work is weather dependent and could be rescheduled.
After the work is complete, the highway will remain reduced to a single lane in both directions due to the proximity of a second slide zone discovered in January roughly 1,000 feet away.
The second slide zone, located at milepost 78.6, remains reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic until further notice. An emergency repair contract is currently being prepared, however a timeline has not been shared yet.
