Dec 23, 2015 - by Amy Cloud, Communications and Outreach

It is important to know that the following City of Bellingham streets will have traffic limitations during the holiday-shortened final week of 2015 to accommodate construction. Motorists are reminded that weather and road conditions can change rapidly; they should plan accordingly.  
 

Alabama Street from Cornwall Avenue to St. Clair Street 
Now that six new overhead pedestrian signals are operational along Alabama Street, drivers need to know that the speed limit has been permanently reduced to 30 mph.  For more information, visit the City's web page at Alabama Corridor Multimodal Safety Improvements or contact Freeman Anthony, P.E., Project Engineer, at fanthony@cob.org or 778-7924.   

8th Street – between Harris Avenue and McKenzie Avenue
This stretch of 8th Street is closed for construction of a regional stormwater treatment facility for Fairhaven. For more information, visit the City's web page at Water Quality for Padden Estuary or contact Larry Scholten, P.E., Project Engineer, at ljscholten@cob.org or 778-7923.  

Harris Avenue – between 6th and 9th

Lincoln Street
Travelers should not experience any delays on Lincoln Street, between Byron Avenue and Maple Street, for construction on sidewalk improvements along the east side of Lincoln Street.

The City of Bellingham Public Works Department provides this road status update, as a public service, based on currently available information. When traveling through a construction area, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are asked to be patient, proceed with caution and obey flaggers at all times. Planned road closures and restrictions are necessary to allow for a variety of work including resurfacing, sidewalk construction, water and sewer main work, and utility cuts. Dates, times and work locations are subject to change due to inclement weather or last-minute changes in work schedules.
