Shintaffer and Harborview roads near Lincoln Road will be taken down to one lane in the coming weeks as part of the Lincoln Road improvement project.

Flaggers will reduce Shintaffer Road to one lane July 5 through July 13 just north of the intersection with Lincoln Road for gas line relocation. The week-long period will also include one to two days of complete closure for Shintaffer, according to Whatcom County Public Works. Harborview Road near the intersection with Lincoln will also be reduced to one lane from July 5 to July 29 for drainage installation.

Lynden-based Stremler Gravel has been working to widen Lincoln Road and improve stormwater management for four weeks. The widening portion of the project has been completed, and drainage swales have been excavated along the roadside. The project will also include dedicated left turn lanes at the intersections with Shintaffer and Harborview roads.
