Roadwork begins tomorrow near McCleary
Starting on Wednesday, the Washington State Department of Transportation will be preparing to repave the right lane of eastbound State Route 8 near McCleary to create a smoother surface for drivers by applying new asphalt.
Paving will occur from mileposts 4 to 10.5, extending from around two miles west of McCleary to four miles east of McCleary at the Grays Harbor/Thurston County line.
Work begins at 8 am tomorrow and runs until the afternoon on both Wednesday and Thursday.
Crews will close the shoulders to repair the pavement in isolated areas.
The eastbound right lane will close for up to half-mile increments and the speed limit will be reduced to 35 miles per hour.
From 9 am to 8 pm on July 14-18, crews will rehabilitate the pavement and repave the right lane of the roadway.
Drivers should prepare for delays as additional lane closures are anticipated through July.
