BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Construction work on Marine Drive between Locust Avenue and Alderwood Avenue will result in lane closures and drivers can expect delays.

Officials with Whatcom County Public Works warn drivers to expect delays during daytime hours from Monday, October 18th, through Wednesday, October 20th. Lane closures are needed to install a stormwater vault.
