Second Street Chip Sealing Starting Monday, June 22nd

Drivers and pedestrians are urged to exercise patience and safety.

San Juan County Public Works (SJCPW) will chip seal Second Street in the Town of Friday Harbor starting the week of June 22nd. The exact date for resurfacing depends on the County’s ability to complete other sections of roadway on San Juan Island that week. Work is estimated to last one day. Second Street will then be re-striped with fresh paint and crosswalk markings as soon as practical. Questions and comments can be forwarded to Town Public Works at (360) 378-2154 or (360) 378-2810.

What to Expect:

  • NO PARKING – “No Parking” signs will be placed on the sidewalks next to the street 24-to-48 hours in advance of the work. Once the process begins, all vehicles must be removed from the project area. Vehicles remaining on the street will be towed at the owner’s expense.
  • ROAD CLOSED TO TRAFFIC– No thru traffic will be permitted on Second Street from the intersection of Spring Street to the intersection of Blair Avenue. This includes the intersections at West, Court & Reed Streets.
  • LOCAL ACCESS ONLY – Pedestrian access will be maintained. When feasible, flaggers will direct vehicles for local access to private parking. Drivers should expect delays and, if possible, plan alternate parking.
  • DETOUR – The public is asked to use alternate routes such as Blair Avenue.

Due to weather, Town construction work will be assessed on a day-by-day basis. As always, drive carefully and thank you in advance for proceeding with caution in areas where Crews are working in the roadway.

  1. Why would businesses impacted by this work not be notified in advance?
