Maintenance District Information

 

SEASONAL WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS:

Seasonal weight restrictions remain on some roads in the Leavenworth and Cashmere road districts. Freight haulers are asked to watch the Traffic Alerts and Restrictions page to keep up on additional restrictions throughout the county.

The special motor vehicle permit application must be in by 10 a.m. Monday through Thursday for approval for travel the following day. (If you need a permit on a Monday, the application must be in by 10 a.m. the previous Thursday.) Freight haulers who do not have a permit to travel on a weight-restricted road risk a fine as well as the cost of damages for any road repairs.

Snow Plow Priority Routes

Chelan County's snow- and ice-control efforts are prioritized to assure vital access is maintained throughout the County. That means school bus routes and major arterials are top priorities during and after a snow event. Local access roads are plowed only after these roads.

The County has many primitive roads. These include dead end roads that don't have a place for plows to turn around or are inaccessible to snowplows. Some primitive roads are not plowed. Others may need to be left unattended until weather and road conditions allow equipment to get to them safely.

Be aware of what type of County road you live on. If you need clarification, check out the Chelan County Snow & Ice Removal Priorities map below.

More information is on our Chelan County Snow Removal Policies.
