Best Road Project Underway

Posted Friday, November 30, 2018

Skagit PUD is installing a new waterline along Best Road from Valentine Road to Summers Drive. Work is now underway with completion schedule for March 2019. 

As part of the construction activities, traffic will be reduced to a single lane controlled by flaggers. Coordination between the PUD, its contractor, and local residents will aid in safe and reliable access to homes and businesses.

The construction contract was awarded to Strider Construction, Inc. They will be installing a new a 12-inch diameter ductile iron pipe and abandoning the existing three- and six-inch diameter water main from service.

Service lines to each meter will be replaced, along with installing fire hydrants, mainline valves, and asphalt shoulder restoration. When complete, the project will improve system reliability and increase fire flow capacity in the area.

Short duration water outages are occasionally expected over the course of the construction project.
