2020 chip sealing program to start June 23

Chelan County road crews have been busy prepping roadways scheduled for chip sealing this year.

Prepping includes crack sealing and putting utility ID locators and coverings over utility cases and lids to protect them from the oil products we apply during chip sealing (see the photo above). They are removed a couple of weeks after a road is chip sealed.

This year, the crew will start chip sealing on June 23. Road crews will begin in the Cashmere District and then make their way to the Leavenworth District. After Leavenworth, they will head to the Chelan District and then wrap up in the Wenatchee District.

Crews expect to complete chip sealing in early August; however, weather and equipment performance may delay or change that schedule. Some years, wildfires have also impacted our schedule. We will try to post weekly to our Facebook page to let you know where the crews are working.

The list of roads up for chip sealing this year is on a couple of places on our website. We’ve mapped them out on GIS as well as provided them in PDF form. Our Pavement Preservation Program page also goes over what to expect when the crew is in your neighborhood. And, if you’d like a map of the road districts, we have that online as well.

When you do come upon a preservation crew, please use caution. Flaggers will be directing traffic, which will be at one lane. There are always some traffic delays with preservation, but they are minor. If you can, it’s best to avoid a roadway while the preservation crew works.
