Chuckanut Drive (also Washington Highway 11) is closed due to a rock slide between Bellingham and Bow. The latest information I have is that it will be closed at least through Sunday, Sept 16th, but Washington State DOT has not given an ETA for reopening - you should check the DOT website before proceeding.
On advice of local bike shop, we took an alternate route using Old Samish Rd and Colony Rd to rejoin the route at Bow. Specifically, we took Old Samish Rd to North Lake Samish Dr to East Lake Samish Dr to Nulle Rd/Old Highway 99 to Lake Samish Rd to Colony Rd to Ershig Rd to Bowhill Rd. This route added apx 5 miles of additional distance, and there is a climb, but it is well-graded. When we took this route, it had very low traffic and nice lake scenery.
