Weekly Road Maintenance Update: Nov. 5 image


A Chelan County contractor on Tuesday, Nov. 6, will finish up replacing recessed pavement markers along Chumstick Highway.

The project may create some minor traffic delays from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Motorists are advised that traffic will be at one lane, with flaggers and a pilot car directing vehicles. Please avoid the area if you can.

The contractor, Pavement Surface Control of the Tri-Cities, already removed the old markers and will begin laying the reflective markers in the center lane, starting at the northern end of Chumstick Highway (near Highway 207) and working its way south toward Leavenworth. Inclement weather, including rainshowers, did not allow the contractor to complete the project the week of Oct. 29


The Stemilt Irrigation District on Monday, Nov. 5, will be doing a water main replacement project at two locations on Hamlin Road – at the bottom end near West Malaga Road and at the upper end near Joe Miller Road.

The contractor, KRCI, will be working 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with Fridays optional. KRCI expects to be working until Nov. 21, with work beginning on that lower end.

No roads impacted by the project will be closed. The work area will be at one lane, with flaggers controlling traffic. Local traffic, which includes residents living in the area, is allowed through. If there are any delays, they will be minor.
