Chelan County road crews will be busy this week. Crews will be skip patching alleys in Manson and on Roses Avenue. Skip patching is similar to chip sealing, but the road crew is putting oil and rock down on a much smaller area. It's done on roads that are not scheduled for preservation next season. Skip patching requires one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic while the crew works.
The crew also will be filling shoulder washes in the Manson area and in the Boyd Road area. And the crew will be ditching in the Manson area, requiring one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic, as well as brooming roads that were skip patched.
In addition, a consultant will be completing routine bridge inspections on a variety of Chelan County bridges. The work requires one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic on the bridges while the crew works. Motorists should plan for minor traffic delays, or to avoid the bridges while crews are working. Crews will work today on inspecting the Chelan Falls Bridge on Chelan Falls Road. Tomorrow, crews will inspect the New Griffith Bridge, over the Entiat River on Entiat River Road.
