“Local access on Harrison Street from Geneste Street to Turn Point Road will be impacted while contractors replace sewer mains and repave,” Town of Friday Harbor Administrator Duncan Wilson said. “We ask the neighborhood for patience as we work through this necessary disruption.”

Traffic on Harrison Street will be disrupted in October while the contractor replaces the sewer main and repaves from Geneste Street to Turn Point Road. The contractor, Konnerup Construction, has been asked to expedite the project with as little disruption as possible; however, some delays and detours will be unavoidable. The public is asked to exercise patience and to make every effort to be respectful of the surroundings in the project area.

Information and updates on the project will be posted online as often as possible. Questions for daily operations can be directed to Project Inspector Pedro Mena with the Town of Friday Harbor at 360-378-2154.

As always, drive carefully and thank you in advance for proceeding with caution in areas where Crews are working in the roadway.

Working hours

The Contractor will begin mobilizing the week of Oct. 4, 2021. Work is authorized Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Typically, working hours will be a combination of 4/10-hour work. Work will be substantially completed within 3-4 weeks.

Street closure

Local access will remain open at all times; however, neighbors of the project should anticipate short delays during certain portions of construction. Pedestrian access will be maintained. The Contractor is making every effort to not be disruptive in the area.

There will be times when the Contractor needs use of both lanes and vehicles. Expect up to 10-minute delays. Traffic will be diverted around the work or stopped entirely when necessary.

Limited parking will be permitted and determined on a day-to-day basis.

Detour

Flaggers will be on-site as needed. Plan alternate routes and parking to avoid delays.

Safety

Pedestrians and motorists should exercise common sense and caution. Be aware of equipment, construction workers, trucks and construction materials. Make sure you are seen while moving within the job site and abide by flagger instructions.
