The City of Ferndale work crews will close 3rd Avenue between Main Street and Alder Street to all traffic and pedestrians for about 3 months while they install new utilities, pavement surface and sidewalks.
The closure is scheduled to begin tomorrow, Monday, July 10th.
Utilities installed will include a low-impact storm water system incorporating pervious pavement and storm water treatment cells beneath the roadway.
Access to the Washington Federal branch will be available throughout the project.
The project is funded by a grant from the Department of Ecology. Per the grant, the City of Ferndale will be reconstructing the road to incorporate pervious pavement and storm water treatment cells beneath the roadway.
