Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to approve a package of bipartisan bills to protect vulnerable coastal and Great Lakes communities impacted by climate change.

The following is a summary of road construction and maintenance scheduled on state highways around Mason County and adjacent areas from December 8, 2019 to December 13, 2019.
US 101 – Coffee Creek – Remove Fish Barrier
Highway: US 101 Region: Olympic County: Mason Location: Milepost(s) 346.8
Description: Due to a revised contractor schedule, the new southbound US 101 exit to Shelton Matlock Road may not open until early January.
