Road restrictions after heavy snow melt considered

Additional weight restrictions likely in Chelan County.


WENATCHEE – Chelan County commissioners on Tuesday will consider revising seasonal road restrictions due to a heavy snow melt.

Commissioners are expected to place additional weight restrictions on some roads. Seasonal snowmelt and runoff can soften roadways, potentially leading to costly damages.

Temporary weight restrictions are put in place annually to protect the roadways from such damage. Only emergency vehicles, school buses or vehicles possessing a special permit issued by the County Engineer are exempt.
