Whatcom County Public Works plans to rehabilitate the East Smith Road roadway surface from July through September 2020. The affected portion of East Smith Road will be from Hannegan Road to SR-542. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during this time and can expect delays if using East Smith Road during this paving operation. As part of the paving project, the intersection at East Smith Road and Everson/Goshen Road will be converted back to a 4-way stop. In addition to the pavement rehabilitation, there will be a culvert replacement, with associated road closure, between Sand Road and SR- 542. Traffic will be detoured around this section of roadway onto SR-542 for approximately two (2) weeks.
All future project updates to scheduling, key milestones, and community impacts will be available on the project website at www.whatcomcounty.us/ESmithPaving and sent out via email and text message to those who are subscribed to Notify Me for the project, which is titled Public Works - East Smith Road Paving on the signup page.
