In the Pacific Northwest, we normally think of road construction season as during the summer time but in Whatcom County we have some upcoming roadwork on I-5 and Mt. Baker Highway that will impact traffic next week. With roadwork comes objects like construction cones and machinery blocking parts of the road. It can also mean lengthy and frustrating delays and a requirement to slow down while passing through the construction zone. Construction zones add danger to a roadway so it is not surprising that they are associated with a higher number of accidents; thousands are injured in construction road accidents every year.
