WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Officials with Whatcom County Public Works (WCPW) announced today, April 8th, they have reopened Goshen Road.

Goshen Road was closed west of Roberts Road during the mid-November storms due to the failure of a steep slope along the north side which resulted in significant damage to the roadway.

The reopening follows completion of repairs to a culvert and roadway washout.

WCPW said that prior to storm damage, design work was already underway for the replacement of the Goshen Road Anderson Creek Bridge No. 248, located east of the damaged section. The storm damage repair work was to be done in consideration of the future bridge replacement project.

    Shhhhh! It’s been 5+ months of living on a quiet country road! Please keep big trucks on designated truck routes. And please drive carefully and within the speed limit.
