E Smith Rd & Hannegan Rd Intersection Improvements

E. Smith.Hannegan Map

Project Update on May 9, 2019

Whatcom County Public Works has executed a final design contract with our consultant, Transpo, and started design of the multi-lane roundabout improvement for the intersection. We have completed our geotechnical explorations, environmental assessments, and survey work at the intersection and are currently working towards a 30% design of the roundabout.

In the weeks and months ahead, you will see Public Works staff on-site gathering additional information about the location that will assist in the design. Construction is currently planned for the Summer of 2021.

If you have any questions please contact Andrew Tischleder, Project Engineer, either via email or by phone. atischle@co.whatcom.wa.us or 360 778-6224.

The intersection of East Smith and Hannegan Roads is located in Sections 28, 29, 32 and 33, T39N, R3E. This intersection currently experiences delays due to the lack of left-turn channelization on Smith Road. Proposed improvements would address operation and efficiency of the entire intersection.
