SHELTON — Improvements to the U.S. Highway 101 and Lynch Road intersection should be completed in three weeks.
That according to Washington State Department of Transportation officials who say the project north of Kamilche will be striped once asphalt has cured.
The Department of Transportation anticipates both acceleration lanes will open to traffic by late October with work being weather dependent.
Newly completed paving and previous work laid the foundation for crews to build new acceleration lanes for Lynch Road drivers merging onto northbound and southbound 101.
Other remaining work includes installing new highway lighting, reinstalling cable barrier and regrading and seeding the median.
Until work is complete, drivers can expect daytime single-lane closures in both directions of 101.
