As we turn the corner into summer, the City’s street assessment continues, utilizing a laser road surface tester mounted on a large white van that is driving every street in Bellingham. That assessment will provide data about streets requiring maintenance and repair and will determine the order for overlay (resurfacing) work. Meanwhile, maintenance work for earlier-identified street needs is underway, as are several construction projects around Bellingham could impact travel as well. Not all projects are the City’s, but still affect travel through town, such as construction along Samish Way and along I-5 at Fairhaven Parkway and at the I-5 exits at Bakerview. As always, please travel with care.
