A project improving fish passage along the Pysht River in Clallam County means a four-day closure of State Route 112 near Sekiu.
From 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20, until 8 a.m. Friday, Aug. 24, the Washington State Department of Transportation will close SR 112 in the vicinity of the Pysht River Bridge near milepost 26.
Motorists will use a signed detour using State Route 113 and US 101.
The closure is necessary so contractor crews with Bruch & Bruch Construction, Inc. can install a new, three-sided box culvert.
Installation requires crews to cut a deep trench across the highway. Once installation is complete, crews will reconstruct the roadway so it can reopen to traffic.
This project is part of WSDOT’s Fish Passage Barrier Removal Program that began in 1991 to identify and remove barriers to fish passage caused by culverts under state highways.
This program is a cooperative effort with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The Sequim Gazette is located at 147 W. Washington Street in Sequim.
