Road Closure for Pipeline Repair

Posted Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Starting May 26, Skagit PUD is scheduled  to begin work repairing a water transmission pipeline from Judy Reservoir that intersects the roadway at 25227 South Skagit Highway. For safety purposes, the road will need to be closed at milepost 1.78 to milepost 4.70 from May 28 to July 3 to through traffic. All traffic for South Skagit Highway will be detoured to Old Day Creek Road.

Local access only will be allowed beyond the Old Day Creek Road detour point and highway barricades located beyond the last residence on each side of the closure.

Flaggers will be onsite directing traffic. Drivers in the area may experience delays due to a concentration of heavy construction equipment and additional vehicles on the roadway. Please allow additional time for travel. 

The District understands the inconvenience this may cause, and we thank everyone for their patience during the construction period. This is a significant project and we wish to keep everyone safe to its completion.

If you have general questions about the project, please contact Project Manager Mike Benton at (360) 424-7104 or by email at benton@skagitpud.org.
