Crews finish replacing Stines Hill Road guardrail


A contractor for Chelan County finished replacing about 300 feet of guardrail this week on Stine Hill Road that was destroyed after a semi rolled there in March.

The truck wrecked while the road was being used a detour after a semi carrying cardboard rolled over on Highway 2 near Peshastin.

Frank Gurney Inc. of Spokane also replaced guardrail on numerous other county roads, including South Lakeshore Road near Chelan and Entiat River Road.

The crews used what’s called a punch truck (pictured left) to punch holes with a force of 2,500 pounds.

The county spent about $115,000 dollars this year replacing guardrails.
