A road improvement project is planned to begin Monday, May 22nd on Portal Way between Enterprise Road and Grandview Road. The work is weather dependent and is estimated to last between 6 and 8 weeks with that section of Portal Way closed for the duration of the project including evenings and weekends.
The project description says contractor crews will grind, pre-level, repair areas of base failure and provide a 2-inch overlay.
According City of Ferndale staff, Portal Way through the project area will be closed to all through traffic including pedestrian. A detour route will be provided via Grandview and Enterprise Roads.
The same section of Portal Way saw its speed limit reduced to 35mph from 45mph back in November as a result of rough road conditions due to the deteriorating road surface.
