Highway 101 in Hood Canal area reopened

Highway 101 between Hoodsport and Brinnon is open again after crews cleared fallen trees and plowed icy parts of the road today, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The 25-mile segment was closed yesterday after heavy snow snapped several trees onto the roadway. A 15-mile segment of 101 between state Route 3 near Shelton and Hoodsport, and a 7-mile portion of State Route 106 between Purdy Cutoff Road and Alderbrook also reopened earlier today.

WSDOT crews will remain on 101 throughout the evening to provide traffic control for Mason County PUD crews while they continue efforts to restore power to the area between Jorsted Creek and Eagle Creek Road. ¬†They’ll also be applying de-icer compounds and other roadway treatments to combat the freezing temperatures and ice expected around Hood Canal tonight.
