Northbound I-5 lane closures south of Bellingham Nov. 20 and 21

(ALGER)– Travelers should plan for a daytime single-lane closure on northbound Interstate 5 near the Skagit/Whatcom county line on Monday, Nov. 20 and Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews will be removing rocks from the catch area between the road and the hillside near the I-5 and Nulle Road interchange, north of Alger. The right lane will close between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily to safely perform the work. The rocks slid down the hillside this past week.

People driving between Burlington and Bellingham next week should give themselves extra time or use State Route 9 to avoid the expected delays.
