SR 542 - I-5 to Britton Road - Paving, Culvert and ADA Compliance - Complete November 2019

Needs and Benefits

In 2019, WSDOT contractor crews repaved three miles of State Route 542 in both directions between I-5 and Britton Road. Highway crossings were improved, a culvert replaced near Dewey Road and in partnership with city of Bellingham, a stretch of sidewalk was added near Applebee's. These improvements provide Bellingham area drivers, cyclists and pedestrians smoother and easier access along this busy stretch of SR 542.
