Road Work in Olympic National Forest

Road work is planned in the Olympic National Forest which will impact travel on Lake Cushman Road and Forest Service Road 23.

A temporary closure of Lake Cushman Road for dust abatement treatment is scheduled for July 5th. Operations will begin early in the morning with grading and prep work. Around 11 AM the dust abatement work will begin. During the spraying and a period of time for setting/drying, the road will be closed. The closure could last several hours. Expect a potential closure of Lake Cushman Road from 11 AM to 5 PM on July 5.

The Olympic National Forest will be repairing the road surface on Forest Service Road 23 near milepost 9 (from the Skokomish Valley Road). Traffic will be slowed and a single lane condition will be maintained during the repair. Users should except the potential for short delays during construction. Work is expected to be completed by July 14th.
