Bellingham Reaches Development Milestone

By Karen Robes Meeks

Bellingham, Wash., city officials opened the first 800 feet of Granary Avenue earlier this month, a major milestone in the Port of Bellingham’s effort to redevelop the downtown waterfront. It allows the public to have access to the former Georgia-Pacific mill site, the new Waypoint Park and new temporary parking lot.

Meanwhile, work is ongoing on the remaining part of Granary Avenue and Laurel Street, which is expected to be finished later this year. When completed, it will connect the downtown waterfront redevelopment area to Cornwall Avenue. Granary Avenue and Laurel Street will feature the city’s first protected bike lane also called cycle-track.
