Pipe Replacement Project Closes Trail Section

Burlington – A project that will replace a section of storm sewer pipe at Skagit Regional Airport will close the Port of Skagit’s nature trail along Higgins Airport Way between Airport Drive and Crosswinds Drive for the next three weeks.

 The port has awarded a contract for $178,907 to Interwest Construction Inc., Burlington, to replace 766 feet of 36-inch-diameter sewer pipe that has failed. The pipe runs north-south along the west side of Higgins Airport Way, carrying storm water from the airport and Bayview Business Park to detention cells down the hill from the airport.
