The National Parks Service has posted a news release on the closure of Whiskey Bend Road starting sometime in early October:

Whiskey Bend Road, which connects Olympic Hot Springs Road to the Whiskey Bend trailhead, will close to all use in early October so that dam removal contractor Barnard Construction and Olympic National Park road crews can repair slide damage in two locations along the 4.5-mile gravel road.

You may recall from earlier reports, that the road has been closed to cars since December 2010 due to slides.
