Edens Road construction starts Monday, Aug. 24
Skagit County Public Works will be temporarily repairing Edens Road, on Guemes Island, starting Monday, August 24. Construction is expected to last until early September. Starting this week, riders will see County trucks traveling frequently on the ferry. The work will take place Monday through Friday each week.
Why do the trucks have to go back and forth? Couldn’t you stockpile materials on the island?
What can the County do to minimize the impact to ferry riders?
We appreciate your patience as we work to maintain our beautiful island.For more information, please contact: John Davidson, Road Operations Division Manager, by phone at (360) 770-5182 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ferry Dock Rehabilitation project is currently in the design phase, with permitting in progress now. Construction is scheduled for 2020-2021. This project will replace three concrete girders that Skagit County was not able to replace during the dock reconstruction in 2011. These girders are located under the NE corner of the dock, well outside of the area where vehicular traffic drives. These three girders are the main factor in the lower sufficiency rating given to the Anacortes dock.
Once all these projects are complete, the Washington State Department of Transportation will reevaluate the sufficiency rating of the docks during its next bridge inspection.
