Patience needed for traffic disruption August 12-16 in Friday Harbor

Drivers in Friday Harbor will need some extra patience Monday, August 12 through Friday, August 16. 

Intersection of Nash and Caines Streets when work started last month. 

“Local Access to Nash Street will be compromised on the day that the cement-treated base (CTB) is poured,” said Town of Friday Harbor Administrator Duncan Wilson. “We ask the local neighborhood, Mullis Senior Center and Fairgoers for their patience as we work through this necessary disruption.”

Traffic will be disrupted from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, August 12 through Friday, August 16 while Contractors prepare the CTB for the roadway at the Caines and Nash Street Intersection, Nash Street and Price Street.

The Contractor will begin roadwork at the Caines and Nash Street intersection and work their way to the Nash and Market Street intersection. Focus will then be shifted to Price Street. This disruption is necessary in order to expedite the overall project.

Work will include three phases:

  1. Grinding the existing asphalt.
  2. Grading the roadbed to its desired elevation.
  3. Pouring the CTB for new asphalt.

These tasks will be completed as quickly as possible.

The Caines and Nash project area will be closed to vehicles in general. Flaggers will be stationed to direct vehicles and pedestrians for local access. No parking will be permitted and local access will be compromised on the day that cement is poured.

Drivers and pedestrians are urged to exercise patience and safety. Alternative driving routes to the SJC Fairgrounds are recommended for fairgoers. Be advised that access to the Mullis Community Senior Center will be disrupted when necessary.

Information and updates on the project will be posted as often as possible. Questions for daily operations can be directed to the on-site Project Manager, Christopher Hallock, Mike Carlson Enterprises or Town of Friday Harbor at (360) 378-2810.
