Budget Information

SR 20 - Spur - Commercial Ave. to Anacortes Ferry Paving


March 2017

  • The project is scheduled to begin in spring 2017.
  • Sign up for email updates about this project and other state roadwork in Island and Skagit counties.

Scheduled for spring 2017, WSDOT will repave two three-mile sections of State Route 20 Spur west of Sharpes Corner to improve and preserve the highway. Crews will pave Sharpes Corner to Commercial Avenue and from Commercial Avenue/12th Street to the San Juan ferry terminal. Commercial Avenue will be repaved at a later date.

Why is WSDOT repaving SR 20 Spur west of Sharpes Corner?
The area was last paved about 20 years ago, and the road is showing signs of wear and tear. There are cracks and potholes in places along the highway. The $6.7 million project will extend the life of the roadway and provide a smoother ride for the more than 30,000 vehicles that use the road every day.

The End Result
This project will extend the life and improve the ride quality of the highway when it’s completed.

Project Benefits

  • Preserves infrastructure and extends the life of the highway.
