Sand Canyon Road  (2/27/23 - 06/15/23)

Sand Canyon Road, from its intersection with Badger Mountain Road, easterly and southerly to the termination of the ROW, will be closed starting Monday, February 27, 2023.  This road is normally gated closed, by Resolution.  The closure will continue until mid-June, 2023.  The closure applies to ALL road users:  motorized vehicles of any kind, cyclists of any kind, and pedestrians of any kind.  The reason for the closure is so that Selland Construction and the East Wenatchee Water District may safely and efficiently install a new water main.  No detour will be provided, as this is a dead-end gated county road.  All adjacent landowners have been notified of the impending closure.  Local access for adjacent landowners will be maintained but prior coordination between landowners and the contractor will be required.  For questions, concerns, or complaints, contact Ricky Rodriguez, Site Foreman of Selland Construction at (509) 670-7573, or Stephanie Flowers, Project Manager of Selland Construction at (509) 881-7325, or Colby Thorpe of the East Wenatchee Water District at (509) 630-9719.
