Spring highway construction will affect San Juan Islands from April into July Featured

Spring highway construction will affect San Juan Islands and north Whidbey Island vacationers If you have plans to travel to the San Juan Islands before Fourth of July, know that a large Connecting Washington project will cause delays from early April into July.

WSDOT contractor crews from Tapani, Inc. will build two new roundabouts in the area of SR 20 and the SR 20 Spur (the intersection in Skagit County where you choose to drive west to Anacortes or turn south toward Oak Harbor).

You can prepare for trips during construction by:

Leaving yourself plenty of extra time to make your Anacortes ferry reservation (there are public parks, a library and/or coffee shops in Anacortes if you end up with extra time). Avoiding travel through the area during peak periods (such as Friday afternoons) – consider going a day or even a few hours earlier to beat the rush.

If you would like more information on the project , stay tuned via the @WSDOT_north Twitter account, the construction web page, or attend one of WSDOT's upcoming public meetings:
