East Smith Road will close on Monday, July 20, for approximately two weeks between Sand Road and SR 542 (Mt. Baker Highway). Detours will be in place. Local traffic will be allowed within the closure area. The closure will allow crews to replace a culvert that runs under E. Smith Road.
This work is part of a larger project that will make other improvements throughout the summer. Other aspects of this project include converting the intersection of East Smith Road and Everson-Goshen Road from a roundabout back to a 4-way stop, and repaving E. Smith Road between Hannegan Road and SR-542 (Mt. Baker Highway). These other aspects of the project will not close the road, but they will cause delays. We expect the entire project to be done in September.
We appreciate everyone’s patience while we do this important work.
