The Hoh Road has reopened, after a two-month storm-damage closure.
The road has been closed since the record-breaking storm of December 3, when heavy rain and floodwaters severely damaged the road. The most significant damage occurred outside the park boundary at mile seven where the road was reduced to one lane. Minor damage also occurred at
Snyder Creek inside the park.
Visitors are asked to use caution when traveling the road as a portion of the roadway has a gravel surface. Caution is also advised at West Twin Creek where contractors continue to repair damage from the 2006 storms.
The Hoh Campground is closed due to storm debris and two feet of snow still on the ground. With the road now open, park crews will begin working in the campground, removing the storm debris and plowing the snow.
Starting Friday, the Hoh Visitor Center will resume its winter hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Fridays through Sundays.
