Skagit PUD is installing 23,000 feet of transmission pipeline along Josh Wilson Road in Burlington this summer between Chuckanut Drive and Higgins Airport Way.

The $4.65 million project is intended to provide adequate water supply for future development needs, enhanced fire protection and system redundancy in the BayView Ridge area. Construction is scheduled from July to October 2012. As part of the construction activities, there will be road closures along Josh Wilson Road with detour routes in place.

A community meeting is planned for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 at the Bay View Elementary School in Burlington to discuss the project. The meeting will focus on the road closures, detour routes, and maintaining access to local residents, businesses and farmers.
