Traffic will be disrupted from 7 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday, Aug. 17, while contractors prepare the cement treated subbase for Web and A Streets.

Roadwork will begin at the Nichols and A Streets intersection, near the parking lot for overflow ferry traffic, and move towards the Argyle and Web intersection.

The Nichols and A Street intersection will be closed to vehicles in general. Flaggers will be stationed to direct vehicles around the project area.

The Washington State Ferries Lot B will be accessed only through B Street. Ferry workers will direct vehicles up Harrison Street to B Street.

Argyle Avenue will be reduced to one lane of traffic approximately 100 feet north and 100 feet south of the Web Street and Argyle Avenue intersection. Flaggers will be stationed to direct vehicles and pedestrians. The alternative route for vehicle traffic on Argyle Street will be via Spring Street to Caines Street.

In both cases, all businesses located within the project area will be accessible by foot. Web, A and Nichols Streets will have limited vehicle access for businesses only.

The town staff are urging drivers to exercise patience and safety. Alternative driving routes to the SJC Fairgrounds are recommended for those attending the county fair, which runs through Aug. 18.

Information and updates on the project will be posted as often as possible. Questions can be directed to the onsite project manager Pedro Mena at pedrom@fridayharbor.org.
