DEMING, Wash. — Whatcom County Public Works officials announced today, Thursday, March 10th, that Truck Road was reopened today following completion of an emergency riverbank stabilization project that began mid-February. While reopened, it is a single lane road with alternating traffic due to the extent of the erosion that occurred.
Truck Road was damaged due to erosion of the Nooksack River riverbank during the mid-November 2021 heavy rains and subsequent disastrous flooding.
Another project to provide environmental mitigation and more permanent road repairs is expected within two years.
Truck road had been closed for 2 months last summer to replace a 5-foot diameter culvert with a 16.75-foot box culvert.
