This project will replace three fish barriers with fish passable structures. Two of the barriers are located along SR 546 (East Badger Road) on either side of Double Ditch Road and the third barrier is located just west of Double Ditch Road near Lynden. This project is located between milepost .1 and milepost .5.
What to expect
Contractor crews working on behalf of the Washington State Department of Transportation expect to begin construction of this project in July 2022.
Drivers should expect single-lane closures throughout the project. To complete construction crews will fully close SR 546 (East Badge Road) from just east of the SR 539 Guide Meridian intersection to just east of Double Ditch Road for 96 consecutive hours. A marked detour using other SR 544, SR 9 and SR 539 is available to move traffic around the work zone. Travelers can expect to see advance warning signs posted in the area five days before the closure begins so they can plan their route and adjust their travel time. This detour will not coincide with the Northwest Washington Fair.
