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.

HOODSPORT, Mason County — A Mason County sheriff’s officer says a 64-year-old Hoodsport-area man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of his wife at their home.
Chief Deputy Dean Byrd says deputies first thought the Thursday afternoon shooting might have been an assisted suicide but now believe the man shot his wife of 37 years after an argument.
KING5 is reporting that the wife was shot after she reportedly told her husband: “Why don’t you just shoot me?”
Police told KING5 that the husband went into a bedroom, got a shotgun, then came out and shot his wife
Neither the man nor his wife, reportedly in her mid-50s, was immediately identified.
The woman was dead at the scene.
Byrd says the man was booked into the Mason County Jail for investigation of murder.
The deputy says investigators won’t know for sure whether the woman had a serious illness until an autopsy is conducted.
He says alcohol may have played a role in the argument and its aftermath.
