Weekly Road Maintenance Update

Road Construction & Maintenance Update: Week of Oct. 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

West Cashmere Bridge Replacement Project: The contractor continues installing a cofferdam near the current bridge’s center pier. The cofferdam will create a dry working area where the new bridge’s center pier will be built. The center pier will be worked on over the winter. It will go in about 50 feet below the river and be about 10 feet in diameter.

 

First Creek Road at Lake Chelan: First Creek Road at Lake Chelan will be closed for the day on Wednesday, Oct. 21. The road crew will be replacing a rusted-out culvert that crosses the roadway about a half mile up First Creek Road. Because the road has only one outlet, there will be planned, intermittent openings to allow for traffic. Work is expected to take one day, depending on conditions. The road closure schedule is:

Closed 8 a.m. to noon: Traffic will be let through as needed at 10 a.m.

Open noon to 12:30 p.m.

Closed 12:30 to 4 p.m.: Traffic will be let through as needed at 2:45 p.m.

 

Road District Maintenance

Visit the Chelan County Public Works website, where the weekly road maintenance information is regularly updated.

District 1 (Wenatchee)

Crews will be ditching in the north end of the district. When ditching, the crew uses a grader to create a divot along the side of the road that will channel water, such as rain or runoff. When crews are ditching, motorists will encounter one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic in the work areas. Plan for minor delays.

District 2 (Cashmere)

Crews will be ditching Nahahum Canyon Road, Yaksum Canyon Road and a portion of Tigner Road. Flaggers will be directing traffic; plan for minor traffic delays when crews are ditching.

District 3 (Leavenworth)

The crew will be ditching on the upper Chumstick Highway. Flaggers will be directing traffic; plan for minor traffic delays when crews are ditching. The road crew also will be cleaning culverts and brushing on the district’s upper snowplow routes.  

District 4 (Entiat)

Crews will be preparing equipment and materials for winter road maintenance and snowplowing operations. Snowplow priority route maps are available on the Road Maintenance webpage.

District 5 (Chelan)

On Oct. 21, the crew will be replacing a culvert on First Creek Road. The work requires a day-long road closure (see above). The road crew also will be cleaning behind barriers and ditching on South Lake Shore Road. Motorists should expect one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic in the work areas. Minor delays may occur.
