Project Details: Whatcom County Public Works is planning to install roadway gates for closing portions of the County roadways during flooding events. These will allow County crews to be more efficient at closing and opening roadways during flooding and will replace the need for barricades, barriers, and other traffic control devices.
Shoulder may be closed during the installation of the gates anticipated to occur in late October 2019. The gates will only be closed during flooding events and will have no traffic impacts at any other times. During flooding events these areas of roadway would have been closed by other traffic control devices.
Project Update for August 28, 2019
Gates are currently being fabricated, and tentatively scheduled to be installed late summer or early fall 2019.
