LYNDEN, Wash. — Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) officials warn motorists that culvert replacement work will require closing Badger Road from 5pm on Monday, August 1st, through 6am on Saturday, August 6th.
Crews working on Pepin Creek and Duffner Ditch fish passage, along a half-mile stretch of E Badger Road (SR546) between Guide Meridian (SR539) and Double Ditch Road will close that section of road while removing old culverts from underneath the road.
A signed detour will guide travelers around the work zone via Guide Meridian, E Pole Road and Everson Goshen Road (SR544) and Nooksack Road (SR9).
Whatcom County Public Works has scheduled chip seal work on E Pole Road this week.
The scheduled 109-hour closure will allow crews to work around the clock in order to complete work ahead of and not impact traffic around the Northwest Washington Fair, according to WSDOT.
