Clearing SR 542 to Artist Point - 2019
Each year, WSDOT maintenance crews from our Shuksan and Bellingham facilities work to clear the final 2.7 miles of SR 542 to Artist Point. This road was built to be a benefit to all Washingtonians and other visitors and while it is unsafe during winter weather, crews clear it ahead of the summer months for the thousands of hikers and sightseers who visit the area. Crews will close the road again this winter when conditions on the steep and winding highway become unsafe.
