Several roads will be closed to traffic at times this week, including the road leading into Boulevard Park in Bellingham, for work on railroad crossings.
Bayview Drive, which leads to the park, is scheduled to be closed at the tracks from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28. No traffic will be able to pass, so people should use the wooden stairs down into the park or access via the South Bay Trail or Taylor Dock.
