Silver Beach Rd and Arbor Court water pretreatment  plant construction project
Work on the City's new water pretreatment plant at Whatcom Falls Park is in the home stretch. Expect to see workers on-site Monday-Thursday 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Fridays ending at 3:30 p.m., and occasional Saturdays.

Note: Silver Beach Road and the lower parking lot will be closed July 12-13 for paving. This may affect traffic on Lakeway Drive.
(The lower Park is open, you can get to it from the upper Park.) There may be extra traffic associated with that work with flagging and limited trail access. Parking at Arbor Court and adjacent access to the waterline trail is closed. For more, visit the City's web page at DAF Water Treatment Plant or contact Freeman Anthony, P.E., project engineer, at or (360) 778-7924.

The weekly Public Works “road report” is distributed to local news media, posted on the City's website, Facebook and Twitter sites, and is sent to all who opt-in to receive City news releases.

Reminder:  when traveling through a construction area – whether walking, cycling or driving – please 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 may change, depending on inclement weather or last-minute changes in work schedules. For questions, contact
