Traffic impacts due to repaving and a culvert replacement project are expected to begin August 24th according a Whatcom County Public Works (WCPW) announcement today.
WCPW warned drivers last month to be prepared for a 3-week road closure due to work scheduled to replace a culvert under Northwest Drive at a location south of Slater Road. In addition to the culvert work, repaving portions of Northwest Drive is planned between Beaumont Drive and Slater Road and a portion of Slater Road from Northwest Drive to Pacific Highway is also expected to be repaved.
