Project Update for October 16, 2019

This project construction is scheduled to begin late October 2019 and is weather dependent.

Project Details

This project is located on Lake Whatcom Boulevard in Section 36, T38N, R3E. The work involves the installation of an electrically powered radar speed sign.

In October of 2017, local residents petitioned the County Council to reduce the speed limit on Lake Whatcom Boulevard from 35 mph to 25 mph between Cherry Lane and the westerly entrance to Strawberry Point, citing numerous safety concerns. The County Council agreed and signed Ordinance 2017-63; the speed limit is now reduced. A radar speed sign will be installed to remind drivers of their speed, and warn those exceeding the speed limit to slow down.
