Construction on SR 9 at county line postponed

WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. – A scheduled weekend closure of SR 9 near the Whatcom-Skagit county line has been cancelled.

The contractor working for the Washington Department of Transportation says it needs more time to make sure a culvert replacement between Royer Street and N.P. Road could be finished in just one weekend closure.

Once rescheduled, the culvert replacement will give a wider, deeper stream passage for fish under the highway.
