Schedule Extended for SR 302 Lane and Ramp Closures in Purdy

Due to equipment issues, the ramp closure dates have been extended for the overnight lane and ramp closures scheduled for SR 302 Minter Creek fish project in Purdy.

Beginning this week, Granite Construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will make pavement repairs during overnight hours along State Route 302 and the adjacent SR 16 ramps in Purdy.

Weeknights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day, crews will reduce SR 302 to a single alternating lane of traffic controlled by flaggers between milepost 10.7 near Key Peninsula Highway to milepost 16.9 at SR 16. All work is weather dependent and could be rescheduled.

Ramp closures:
Tuesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 1
• The eastbound SR 302 on-ramp to SR 16 will close from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. Drivers will detour using Burnham Drive.
Monday, July 6 and Tuesday, July 7
• The westbound SR 16 off-ramp to SR 302 will close from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. Drivers will detour using Burnham Drive.
Wednesday, July 9
• The eastbound SR 302 on-ramp to SR 16 will close from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. Drivers will detour using Burnham Drive.

Outside of the scheduled overnight paving activities, daytime travelers may encounter intermittent delays with flaggers to allow for construction equipment to enter or exit the highway.

This work is part of a cumulative fish passage project, which includes 6 miles of highway paving, making improvements for those who walk or roll as part of the American’s with Disabilities Act at the Key Center intersection of SR 302, and conducting deck repairs to the driving surface of the SR 302 Purdy Bridge. The bridge deck repairs will require up to three, full weekend closures of the bridge, which have not be announced. Any scheduled closures will be announced in advance.
