Vedder & South Sumas Intersection

Project Details

The Vedder Road and South Sumas Road Intersection Design-Build project is completed. The key goal for this project was to construct road widening and signal upgrades to provide designated northbound and southbound left turn lanes at South Sumas Road. Improvements to street lighting, drainage and sidewalks were also incorporated. Residents can expect a significant reduction in traffic congestion and improved signal operation with these upgrades.

The contractor worked hard to minimize traffic congestion and impact to the community during construction by adjusting times of road construction, maximizing efficiencies to reduce total length of construction period, and completing the most impactful construction work at night.
