A New Road For Whidbey - Oakes Road

by Island County Public Works 22nd June 2018

 

Island County Public Works has begun construction on a new road, named Oakes Rd, between Race Rd. and Houston Rd. that will serve as an emergency route should SR 525 become blocked by an accident or other incident.  Work is expected to be completed by Spring 2019.

 

The project also includes off-site mitigation improvements to reclaim a wetland previously used as a farmed wet meadow and most recently as a stockyard within the Saratoga Woods Park, to its previous condition as a wetland.
