If your photography plans include a trip to Mount Rainier National Park anytime in the next several months, you may encounter delays due to construction on Washington State Highway 706. Reconstruction and improvements to the section of the highway from the Nisqually Entrance, through Longmire, and up to the Paradise Meadows area began this month and work will continue through summer and into early autumn. Traveling on this section of the road Monday through Friday, you’ll need to allow an extra hour for your trip. There should be no delays on weekends and holidays. For more information about the project and an update on current conditions, check the Mount Rainier National Park website.
