Summer is always known as road construction season, let's add a few more fish barrier removal projects to the mix to State Route 109 for the summer traffic so that those out towards the ocean do not feel left out.

Crews to remove barriers to fish at 5 locations between Hoquiam and Pacific Beach

HOQUIAM – This summer, trips to coastal beach communities between Hoquiam and Pacific Beach may include a couple different routes.

Washington State Department of Transportation’s contractor Kiewit will remove and replace culverts under the highway at five locations. Travelers will follow detours around five separate work zones on State Route 109.

The detours will provide access to coastal businesses and communities.

The project will open new fish passage and improve access to habitat.
