Double-Secret Commute Route Reopened

The best-kept “double-secret” commute route into and out of north Ferndale has reopened several weeks earlier than expected.

Brown Road was closed for several weeks so a City of Ferndale contractor could replace an aging culvert and bring the section of road up to city standards.

Commuters have discovered Brown Road is key to a relatively traffic-free commute route to/from north Ferndale destinations (e.g. Church Road and Thornton Street) with higher-speed roads and no traffic lights that bypasses the typical traffic jams. The route starts/finishes at the I-5 Portal Way exit and makes use of Portal Way and Brown Road as shown on the map below.

While longer, the lack of traffic and signals combined with higher speed limits makes the time spent about the same or event less than other more commonly used routes.
