Weekly Road Maintenance Update

Road Construction & Maintenance Update: Week of April 19

To minimize potential exposure to COVID-19 to staff and the public, Chelan County Public Works is open by appointment only. Call 667-6415 for an appointment.

 

COUNTY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

West Cashmere Bridge Replacement Project: On Hay Canyon Road, watch for flaggers during the day while the contractor continues earthwork in that area, where a roundabout will be built. If traveling on Hay Canyon Road after work hours, watch for traffic control devices that will direct motorists through the work zone.

Hand Striping is Underway: Hand striping typically runs from mid-April until about mid-May. You may come upon a two-man, mobile crew striping crosswalks and stop bars (the white line in front of stop signs) throughout the county, with the Traffic Safety crew starting in Wenatchee and working its way to the Cashmere, Entiat, Chelan and Leavenworth districts, respectively. Motorists are asked to be mindful of traffic cones, directing them where to pass in the work area – and where to stay off wet paint. Motorists also are asked to watch closely for the crew so no one gets hurt.

When hand striping, the crew uses a paint pump on wheels and a waterborne white paint that typically dries in 5 minutes. With warmer temps, it dries even faster. If you see a traffic cone in front of a newly painted crosswalk or stop bar, don’t drive over it; the paint is still drying. Go around the cones and stay to the right side of the road. (If there isn’t a traffic cone marking a freshly painted white line, that means the line is dry and you can drive over it.)

Crews will be addressing service requests on Monday. After Monday, the crew will be working in the Three Lakes area of Malaga, brushing and patching roads scheduled for the 2021 Preservation Program.

Crews will be helping with crack sealing in Peshastin. The crew also will be prepping pre-level roads as well as patching roads throughout the district.

District 3 (Leavenworth)

Crews will be crack sealing in the Peshastin area, including on Main Street, School Street, Mill Road and Eagle Creek Road. Motorists should expect minor traffic delays in the work area, with one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic. Temporary weight restrictions are on roads in the Leavenworth District.

District 4 (Entiat)

The crew will be working on Oklahoma Gulch and Johnson Creek roads, grading and cleaning culverts.

District 5 (Chelan)

Crews will be crack sealing in the Manson area. When crack sealing, traffic will be down to one lane, with flaggers directing traffic. Minor traffic delays are expected. The crew also will be repairing potholes in the Manson area, grading primitive roads and brushing on South Butte Road, as time allows.
