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.


Red is a Priority 1 Route

Yellow is a Priority 2 Route

Orange is a Priority 3 Route
