Slowing Third Street traffic options weighed by Council
September 30, 2020
The initial option for slowing traffic on North Third Street has hit a speed bump of its own.
Hindered by expected revenue shortfalls linked to COVID-19, Town officials are backing off plans to install elongated speed bumps on the main route to and from the Port of Skagit’s La Conner Marina.
“The reality is I don’t think we can afford these measures,” Town Administrator Scott Thomas said of placing speed bumps similar to those at the U.S.-Canada border crossing in Blaine as a means of improving traffic safety on North Third, long a priority among residents in the area.
