Paving work starts May 30 near Conway, Skagit Airport

With the return of warm weather comes the return of road construction season. Three Skagit County Public Works paving projects are set to kick off at the end of the month near Conway and the Port of Skagit Airport.

Contractor crews with Granite Construction plan to begin the hot-mix asphalt overlay projects May 30 along Fir Island Road, between Dry Slough and Maupin Road; along Higgins Airport Way, between SR 20 and Peterson Road; and at the intersection of Old Highway 99 South and Conway Frontage Road, south of Mount Vernon. Construction should wrap up the week of June 23.

Crews plan to work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work is weather-dependent, so cold or wet weather could cause delays.

During construction, the road will be reduced to one lane. A pilot car will direct traffic through the construction zone. Drivers are advised to expect delays, and may want to consider alternate routes.
