Mission Creek Road project awarded; work starts this summer

(Photo above: The Mission Creek Road improvement project will utilize full-depth reclamation, a pavement rehabilitation technique the county used on Eagle Creek Road near Leavenworth, where this photo was taken.)


Chelan County commissioners have awarded a $1.3 million contract to Selland Construction of Wenatchee for a road improvement project on Mission Creek Road in Cashmere that will begin this summer.

The project will rehabilitate 2.42 miles of the road, beginning from milepost 2.58 (near Coates Road) to milepost 5.0, using a technique called full-depth reclamation, or FDR. FDR is a pavement rehabilitation technique in which the asphalt pavement and a portion of the underlying materials are uniformly pulverized and blended together, resulting in a new stabilized base course. Then a mat of asphalt is placed on top. Chelan County Public Works has used FDR successfully in road preservation projects, including most recently on Wenatchee Heights Road near Wenatchee and Eagle Creek Road near Leavenworth.

The project also will replace deficient guardrail, replace existing road signage and institute other safety improvements. There are no proposed alignment modifications to the roadway. Construction is expected to take about six weeks, and traffic will be at one lane in the work area, with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorists through the area.

Chelan County Public Works now will work with Selland Construction to formalize a contract. Read more about the project on its project page, which includes a FAQ section. Or sign up for our listserv to receive updates on the project
