FERNDALE, Wash. — City of Ferndale officials said Friday, October 9th, that repair work on a newly installed water main would require Hovander Road to remain closed between Main Street and LaBounty Drive all-day and all-night over the weekend and into next week.
The road was initially closed during the week of September 21st to allow for the water main installation. Subsequent testing revealed a potential leak in the new section of the water main and the road was closed again beginning October 5th for an indefinite number of days to allow for investigation and repair.
City staff were unable to commit to a specific date for when the road could be expected to reopen.
