Road Maintenance

Maintenance District Information



During winter, the recurring periods of freezing and thawing can damage unpaved portions of county roads. Roads also may need to be closed to protect wintering herds of mule deer. On Wednesday, Dec. 1, Horse Lake Road in Wenatchee and Oklahoma Gulch Road near Entiat will be closed until April 1.



Information regarding maintenance work occurring in the county maintenance districts for the week of Nov. 29, 2021:

District 1 (Wenatchee)

Crews will be cutting brush and installing snow markers. No traffic impacts anticipated.

District 2 (Cashmere)

Crews will be monitoring for any water issues, training new employees, and doing snow and ice control as needed. 

District 3 (Leavenworth)

Crews will be brushing plow routes, mowing brush, and doing snow and ice control as needed.

District 4 (Entiat)

Crews will be removing hazardous trees and brushing on Entiat River Road.

District 5 (Chelan)

In the Manson area, crews will be doing shoulder stabilization work and ditching. Both require one lane, flagger-controlled traffic in the work zones. Motorists should plan for minor delays if they come upon the county crew working. The crew also will be brushing on South Lakeshore Road (minor delays) and doing snow and ice control as needed.

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.
