Plan For Two-Way Traffic On South Shore Road

Skagit County Public Works Department has released a proposal that would return South Shore Road to two-way traffic with six one-lane pullouts, where eastbound traffic would need to yield to westbound traffic. A return to two-way traffic was recommended by the South Shore Road Advisory Committee (SSRAC) last September. Public Works is seeking input on the proposal from the public. The SSRAC will review the plan on June 16. Comments are due back to Public Works by the end of June. The goal is to implement the plan this summer. - SSRAC
