Drivers need to know that some City of Bellingham streets will have traffic limitations during the week of November 14-18 in order to accommodate construction. Motorists are reminded that weather and road conditions can change rapidly; drivers should plan accordingly. 

Champion Street – from Ellis Street to Cornwall Avenue
Construction work on a water main project will impact traffic, with flagging and some road closures while crews perform sidewalk restoration work.  Drivers should also expect some construction delays on Cornwall Avenue at Champion Street. For more information, visit the City's web page at Water Main Replacement Program or contact Stephen Day, P.E., project engineer, at or 778-7944. 

C Street and Roeder
The Port of Bellingham is installing a city watermain on C and Roeder. Most of the work is on C Street, with intermittent delays on Roeder. Flaggers will direct through work zone.

Silver Beach Ave and Arbor Court
Drivers, residents and visitors to Whatcom Falls Park should expect construction traffic associated with the Water Treatment Plant pretreatment project.  Due to increased construction-related traffic, there will be periodic flagging and limited trail access. The parking at Arbor Court and adjacent access to the waterline trail will be closed through 2018 to allow for construction.

WSDOT – Whatcom County
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) does not have any projects scheduled in Bellingham, but there is construction work throughout Whatcom County. For details, visit the Washington State Department of Transportation.

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. For general questions, please query
