Road Maintenance

ROAD ALERTS

No. 1 Canyon Road: Motorists and neighbors will see an increase in heavy truck traffic on No. 1 Canyon Road, where a flood mitigation project is underway. A contractor for the Chelan County Flood Control Zone District is building four debris basins at the end of the roadway on county-owned property. The basins, when built, will capture and release canyon flood flows downstream in an attempt to minimize future damage to private and public property.

Horse Lake and Oklahoma Gulch Roads: The morning of Thursday, Dec. 1, both Horse Lake Road in Wenatchee and Oklahoma Gulch Road near Entiat will be closed until April 1. Both roads are closed every winter via county resolution to protect wintering mule deer and the primitive roadways. During the winter, the recurring periods of freezing and thawing can damage unpaved portions of county roads. Gates to the roads will be closed early that morning.

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.

Legend:

Red is a Priority 1 Route

Yellow is a Priority 2 Route

Orange is a Priority 3 Route
