Old River Road
November 6, 2013
West Coast Construction has completed the repair of Old River Road. The
road is now open and drivers no longer need to detour around Judd Road and Gwee-Shut. The
failed section of Old River Road has been realigned away from the failing slope
and the roadway secured with a solder pile wall tied back into existing bed
field work was started in July of this year and was substantially completed on
time and slightly under budget. The
only remaining work left is the application of lane striping. Unfavorable
weather conditions prevented that final task from taking place. However
the contractor has placed temporary pavement markers to create the lanes needed
to open this road to the public. The
lane striping will be completed when a good weather break emerges.
and Removal of Downed Trees on County Road Right of Way:
You may cut trees which have fallen along County Roads ONLY if you
are the adjacent property owner or have permission from the owner.
You may not
fall standing trees without approval from the Road Department.
This applies only to County Roads not State Highways, Forest Service Roads, or
on private lands.
Public Works is responsible for most of the physical
assets of the County.
It is the philosophy of the department that preventative maintenance is cost
effective and preferable to repair or reconstruction.
