City of Ferndale staff have announced Main Street, between 2nd Avenue and 4th Avenue, will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, October 5th, from 7am until 5pm.

The closure will allow the City’s contractor to pave 3rd Avenue as part of the road improvement project between Main Street and Alder Street.

Traffic will be detoured around the construction area via Alder Street and Vista Drive. Drivers can expect delays around the closure as a result.

According to a traffic study done in May of 2015, Main Street carried 12,359 vehicles per day. In comparison, a similar study in June of 2014 showed Slater Road carrying 11,451 vehicles per day (source: Whatcom Council of Governments GIS).
