Road Detour Adds a Few Extra Minutes to Westbound Travelers

July 19th, 2017 by S3

Road construction, calendered to not disrupt wild Salmon migration, will require Victor’s visitors traveling from Seattle and other eastern locations to travel a few extra minutes in order to reach Victor’s.

The good news is that – thanks to the construction – Old Olympic Highway becomes a Cul de Sac, with Victor’s Lavender perfectly positioned at the end of the “block!”

Travel the extra few miles to get here, and enjoy extra parking options thanks to this one-year-only road work.
