Whatcom County Public Works will close Slater Road between Ferndale Rd. and the railroad crossing at the Ferndale City Limits from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 21, for chip seal operations. This closure is in effect for ALL TRAFFIC, including emergency vehicles and school buses. Detour routes will be in place throughout the road closure. The closed section is the same area that closes during flood events and will incorporate the same marked detour route used during those events. View a map showing the Slater Road closure area.
The following roads are scheduled for chip seal maintenance July 19-22. Drivers should expect long delays and use alternate routes if possible.
Please relocate any vehicles parked along the above-listed roads that are in the right-of-way before 6:00 am on all days when chip sealing is scheduled.
This work is weather-dependent and is subject to change. That means roads may be chip sealed that are not in the list above, or roads on the list may not be completed within the date range referenced.
