Citywide Crack Sealing Starting May 14th

Over the next few weeks, City of Ferndale Public Works will be taking advantage of the dry weather to perform road maintenance and crack sealing throughout the City. This work helps prevent water infiltration into the subgrade, which can weaken the foundation of the road.
Crack sealing work will be done in small sections of roadway at a time and should only cause brief disruptions. It is important to know that this work can be noisy and dusty. If any dust or debris ends up on your vehicle, please do not wipe it off as the dust can scratch paint; it is best to rinse the dust using water. If you have any questions or concerns, contact City of Ferndale Public Works at (360) 384-4006.
Larger projects will be signed and flagged. Expect to see crews doing pavement crack sealing on Church Road and Main Street (east of the river) this week (May 14-17), dependent on weather and crew availability.
