Road construction season is just around the corner.

Washington State Department of Transportation is holding an open house meeting next month to educate residents about a 30-mile paving project on state highways 20 and 525. The meeting is from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 14 at Coupeville High School.

The state also invited other partners on Whidbey Island, such as Island County public works, to attend the meeting and answer questions about other projects down the road.

The open houses are a casual format.

“Drop in anytime during the times listed above to chat one-on-one, or in small groups, with engineers and others involved directly with projects in your community,” WSDOT reported in a press release.

WSDOT officials are also holding an open house focused on the 2018 Sharpes Corner intersection improvement project from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 13 at the Anacortes Middle School. The meeting will also touch on this summer’s State Highway 20 spur paving project.

“We want to make sure you know about the projects coming to your neighborhood and provide you the chance to get questions easily answered,” WSDOT reported.
