About this project
Summary of work
- Resurfacing (cold-in-place recycle) with 3" overlay of Hwy 75
- Cold-in-place recycling is a method of removing and reusing the existing asphalt surface.
- Sidewalk and pedestrian improvements to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards in Bellingham
- Culvert lining
- Guardrail replacement
- Enlargment of paved shoulder from 2 feet to 6 feet
- Chip seal of Hwy 75
- Chip seals, also referred to as seal coats, protect the pavement, increase skid resistance and extend the life of the road.
- Although it seems natural to avoid a road that has been recently coated or fixed, the chip sealing is unique in that it does not keep drivers off the road.
- You can drive on a freshly chip sealed road after it has been swept.
- A road that has been chip sealed will not be as quiet as new pavement. After a winter of plowing, the vehicle noise will diminish and you will notice that the road will not sound as loud.
Upcoming traffic impacts
