SR 109 turns left, proceeding straight takes you down the Copalis Beach Rd, a county highway back to 101. You can see the “TO 101″ sign in the background

This is an interesting sign. I’ve yet to see an 8 mile advance warning of a highway ending, but I kind of like it. The blue background is interesting, but I guess it is an “information” sign for gas and food in Taholah.

Not a lot going on here, just a random reassurance shield.

SR 109 comes to an end just after the stop sign. In theory, this shouldn’t be the end. Legislation has, since 1964, called for an extension all the way up to Queets. A 1964 map shows that this road  was signed on a dirt road from Queets down almost to Taholah. Signage has been removed there due to a disagreement with the Quinault Nation and now it just heads up to Taholah, likely never to be completed.
