History

Trees form a canopy over SR 11 south of Bellingham.
The road that is now called State Route 11 was first built in 1896 as part of the first road to connect Whatcom Countymarker with points south, including Seattlemarker and Tacomamarker. Before the construction of the road, travel was commonly done over water, and the construction of the road contributed greatly to the development of Bellingham.

Between 1913 and 1931, Chuckanut Drive was part of the Pacific Highway auto trail, which in 1926 was designated U.S. Route 99. After 1931, the road was bypassed by a more inland route and became primarily a scenic drive, briefly designated U.S. Route 99 Alternate. Today, I-5 follows the inland route and the oceanside drive is SR 11.
