In a milestone event for the Port’s downtown waterfront redevelopment project, the City of Bellingham opened the first 800 feet of Granary Avenue on Friday. The public is now able to access the former Georgia-Pacific mill site and recently opened Waypoint Park from Granary Avenue and a new temporary parking lot built by the Port.
Construction on the remaining portion of Granary Avenue and Laurel Street is ongoing and, when complete later this year, will provide a road connection through the downtown waterfront redevelopment area to Cornwall Avenue.
Granary Avenue and Laurel Street include Bellingham’s first cycle-track, a protected bike lane physically separated from the street allowing bicycle movement in both directions on one side of the road.
