Lake Whatcom Blvd. Road Closure

The Whatcom County Public Works Department will close the 2500 block of Lake Whatcom Blvd. on Thursday, April 19th for a tree removal project. This closure will be in effect on April 19th between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:00 pm. As this project is weather dependent, the closure date and time is subject to change.

This closure is in effect for ALL TRAFFIC, including emergency vehicles and school buses. Detour routes will be in place throughout the road closure.

Please direct questions to Whatcom County Public Works, Maintenance and Operations at (360) 778-6400.

Traffic Updates Due To Snow

What? Trees are down on and/or across multiple roadways, preventing normal traffic flow.

Where? Area of 34 Rocky Ridge, Sudden Valley Drive between North Summit and Holly View Way, Holly View Way and North end of Harbor View (unpassable), 22 Canyon Ct.

SVCA Maintenance crews are working hard to remove obstructions to resume normal traffic flow.  Please plan ahead to use alternate routes where necessary.  Please pay close attention to workers on our roads and use caution going around any work crews.  Snow response was activated at approximately 3am and removal efforts began at approximately 4 a.m.  Thank you for your patience as our crews work to clear our roads by following their assigned snow removal routes.  Please call Security at (360) 319-8200 to notify us of downed trees which are blocking the road.  Snow removal efforts are by assigned routes and we will clear main roads first.  Please do not call in to notify us of snow on roads as this will cause delay in our response to callers informing us about actual road blockages.  More information will be posted, including snow response route maps, later today.

Of Note:  Most lower areas are clear of snow as of 6am.  Elevations are experiencing approximately one inch since snowfall began a little before 11pm last night.  We will continue to post as we get updates of impassable areas.  Again, thank you for your patience as we work to clear the roads.
