This project will restore the natural shoreline, protect the roadway from storm damage, and support pedestrian safety with a separated berm that runs from the mouth of Terrell Creek (Lora Lane) to Cedar Avenue approximately 1.58 miles in length along the beach. The project will be constructed over two seasons concluding in April 2021.
Status: Construction began December 9, 2019 and will continue through March 2020 for this first project season. The project will be on hiatus from April through September 2020.
Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and changing limitations put in place to keep the community safe, the current construction schedule may frequently change to accommodate a safe work environment and community.
It is the Contractor and Whatcom County’s intent to finish the following work before the suspension of work at the end of May:
Traffic impacts are likely to include some single lane and shoulder closures. Wait times for lane closures should be less than 5 minutes.
The web will likely not be updated again until the suspension of work begins at the end of May.
