May 2022: 
Beginning in early May, we plan to have our contractor resume construction activities in the intersection.  Initially, our contractor will begin preparations to re-activate the detour routes around the intersection.  Once this is completed, we will close the intersection to the traveling public.  For more information, please read the press release below:


Farm to Market and Josh Wilson Road Intersection Construction to Begin First Week of May

Skagit County will close the intersection at Farm To Market & Josh Wilson Roads to traffic beginning the week of May 2nd, weather permitting.

On May 2nd, our contractor will begin work to restore the detour route signing and prepare for closure of the intersection. As our crews resume construction activities, please remember to “Give’em A “Brake” and drive carefully through the intersection, especially when workers are present.

We are excited to restart construction activities on this project. As we anticipate approximately three months of construction time, we appreciate the community’s patience with this important improvement project.

Project Description
This project will convert an existing two-way stop-controlled intersection at Farm to Market Road and Josh Wilson Road meet into a single-lane roundabout. The work will include the construction of a central island, truck apron, concrete curb and gutter splitter islands, new stormwater culvert, new asphalt roadway surfacing, lane striping, new road signs, and the installation of an illumination system to light the intersection.

The Engineer’s estimated construction cost range is between $1.5 and 1.8M

Bids were opened on July 19th, 2021.

Contractor will begin prepping the site on May 2nd, 2022. The scheduled road closure will go into effect on May 4th, 2022, weather permitting.
