Road work may lead to delays on Highway 104

Posted

Road repairs on Highway 104 near Chimacum are expected to slow traffic from Monday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 12.

Washington State Department of Transportation crews will perform preservation work on a 3.8-mile stretch of the highway between US 101 and Highway 19.

The work will include chip sealing of the existing pavement to extend the useful life of the roadway.

Transportation officials said drivers on Highway 104 should plan for extra time for their trips. The Department of Transportation expects miles-long backups in both directions. 

Drivers can expect delays of 15 minutes or more and will see the speed limit reduced to 35 mph around the clock throughout the week. 

The highway will be shut down to one-way alternating traffic controlled by flaggers from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

A pilot car will lead travelers through the work zone, which starts at Milepost 2 and ends just short of Milepost 6.

Due to potential travel delays, transportation officials are encouraging drivers to consider traveling early in the morning or late in the day if possible, or rescheduling or combining discretionary travel trips.

Officials noted that the resurfacing work requires dry and warm weather, and may be rescheduled if it rains.
