City of Ferndale staff announced this afternoon to expect traffic impacts while crews replace the streetlights along Pioneer Bridge over the Nooksack River. The work is expected to reduce Main Street to one lane through the work area with flaggers alternating traffic flow.
The work is scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, February 14th from 9am to 3pm.
Drivers can expect backups on not only Main Street but also nearby side streets and alternate routes around the work area.
According to City staff, crews will be replacing the streetlights with new, energy efficient LEDs, the final step in the partnership between the City, PSE and the State Transportation Improvement Board to update streetlights throughout the city.
