On the Road
Micro-surface paving has been postponed until further notice due to unforeseen circumstances.
 
County crews completed this summer’s chip seals on schedule. Road striping will be restored soon. If you live along or use these roads, thank you for your patience and please let us know what we did well and how we can improve.
 
Asphalt overlay paving continues on neighborhood streets in the Urban Road Maintenance District. The tentative schedule is posted below (scroll down to Road Maintenance Projects). Roads remain open during this work; expect delays or use alternate routes.
 
Pavement patching continues on Cedar Canyon and Thatcher roads. Pavement repairs are being made on Rosedale Road in preparation for paving later this summer. Culverts are being replaced on Mead Lane and Murtaugh Road. Bridge repairs continue on Mount Richmond Road, Old Hwy 47 and Pihl Road. Vegetation crews continue roadside mowing and brush-cutting. Community Service workers continue landscape maintenance along urban roadways. Traffic crews are repairing signs and refreshing pavement markings – watch for and use caution around nighttime road striping operations.
 
Adopt-A-Road volunteers are picking up litter along 170th Avenue from Coventry to Shaw (In Memory of Chiara Acker). Thank you, volunteers!
 
Tis’ the season for roadwork – happening all over Washington County! Check with the appropriate road agency for projects in your area. Orange is your clue to slow down and pay attention!
