Learn what county roads will be chip sealed this year

Posted By: Public Works on May 07, 2018

The 2018 Road Preservation Program has been underway for the past several weeks at Chelan County Public Works.

County road crews have been out crack sealing Preservation Program roads throughout the county. Crack sealing is a preventative maintenance step where hot sealant is filled into cracks in the roadway to prevent against further water damage. It is the first of three steps in the chip sealing process.

The roads in the 2018 Preservation Program were previously identified based on a rating system that defines what state the pavement is in and what fix is required. Roads scheduled for preservation this year are:

  • Wenatchee District: No. 1 Canyon Road, Sage Hills Drive, Austin Avenue, Austin Court, Lester Road, Day Road, Day Drive, Horse Lake Road, Love Lane, American Fruit Road, View Place, Hilltop Place, Sunnyslope Heights Road, Teakwood Lane, Morningwind Lane, Rolling Hills Lane, Mahogany Lane, Stoneybrook Lane and Lower Sunnyslope Road.
  • Cashmere District: Airport Road, Brender Road, Briskey Canyon Road, Pioneer Drive, Brender Canyon Road, Nahahum Canyon Road.
  • Leavenworth District: Simpson Road, Stemm Road, Stage Road, River Bend Drive, Brown Road, Fir Road, Fir Drive, Maple Drive, Spromberg Canyon Road, Merry Canyon Road, County Shop Road, Chumstick Highway and North Road.
  • Chelan: Minneapolis Beach Road, Ridgeview Drive, Navarre Drive, Fields Point Road, Shady Pass Road, Howard Flats Road, Gallagher Road, East Hugo Road, Hugo Road, Substation Road and Howard Flats Road NE.

Also included this year in the Preservation Program will be the re-sealing of Mission Ridge Road and Forest Ridge Drive. Both roads will be chip sealed and fog sealed (to help the curing process) before crews begin chip sealing the other roads scheduled for preservation this year.
