WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — 2 scheduled bridge inspections in Ferndale and 1 near Baker Lake are expected to impact traffic for several hours over 3 days next week according to announcements from the City of Ferndale and Whatcom County Public Works.

On Monday, April 24th, Whatcom County Public Works is scheduled to inspect Baker Lake Road Bridge #421 near the Whatcom-Skagit County line between 12pm and 4pm.

On Tuesday, April 25th, WCPW is scheduled to inspect the Slater Road bridge over the Nooksack River between 9am to 3pm.

On Thursday, April 27th, the Washington State Department of Transportation is scheduled to inspect the Main Street bridge over the Nooksack River (Pioneer Bridge) in Ferndale from 9am to 3pm.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane over the bridges during the inspections and flaggers will alternate traffic through the open lane. As a result, motorists are advised to use alternate routes or to plan for delays.

These are routine bridge inspections conducted every 2 years.
