Drayton Harbor Road now open

By Tara Nelson

Drivers wanting a shorter route to Semiahmoo will now have that option after crews finished long-awaited reconstruction work of Drayton Harbor Road.

The road was closed on an emergency basis in January 2005, after a period of heavy rains washed out a section of the road.

It took more than two years to obtain the necessary permits for the project, which included extensive foundational stablizing efforts and shoreline improvements.

As of press time, Whatcom County spokesperson Joe Bates said the road should be open as of 5 p.m. Wednesday. For more information, call 715-7450.
