Lonngren Pass closing next week for WSDOT work

Lonngren Pass will be closing one day next week.

The Washington Department of Transportation announced that any drivers who use the State Route 109 Spur in Hoquiam will need to find an alternate route on Wednesday, November 9.

DOT crews will be on the spur between US 101 and SR 109 removing trees and performing maintenance work in preparation for the winter storm season.

The spur will close from 9 am. to 4 pm. Wednesday, Nov. 9.

No detour will be provided.

The pass was named after George Lonngren, who died in 2006, the day after his 89th birthday, and was intended according to John Larson with the Polson Museum as a truck route, but due to declining forestry work never saw the expected traffic.
