Maintenance District Information

 

ROAD ALERT: FIRST CREEK ROAD

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. 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.

Work is expected to take one day, depending on conditions.

 

 

WEEKLY UPDATE

Information regarding maintenance work occurring in the county maintenance districts for the week of Oct. 19, 2020:

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.

Crews will be preparing equipment and materials for winter road maintenance and snowplowing operations. Snowplow priority route maps are available below.

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).

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
