Officials with Whatcom County Public Works say detours setup around 2 road closures are expected to remain in place for months.
E Hemmi Road in Everson will be closed to through traffic between Hannegan Road and Noon Road beginning July 14th. This closure will allow for reducing the risk of flooding on E Hemmi Road. The work involves raising 1,100 feet of E Hemmi Road that is prone to flooding and replacing a 5-foot diameter culvert at Tenmile Creek with a 16.75-foot span culvert.
Truck Road in Deming will also be closed to through traffic between Deal Road and Mosquito Lake Road for several months to replace a 5-foot diameter culvert with a 16.75-foot box culvert. The closure is expected to begin July 12th and remain in place until early fall.
