Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
The "unadopted" policy for pavement marking in Kittitas County is the current
criteria used in the county for determining if a road gets pavement marking and
what type of stripe is required. The policy is to be presented to the Board of
County Commissioners for adoption in the near future. This current policy
exceeds the requirements set fourth in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control
Pavement marking policy
The 2009 pavement marking schedule for Kittitas County lists the
roads to be striped broken down by Upper and Lower County. The roads are listed and
have a starting point location and an ending point location. The stripes are broken
down by paint type and color. There are centerline, fog lines, passing lines, bike lines
and lines that create turn pockets. The paint meets the WSDOT specifications and is
applied at a designated rate.
The annual program is setup for 2 application operations. The first application is made
in late spring when air and surface temperatures are conducive to bond paint to existing
paint stripes. The second application is made in mid-summer after completion of scheduled
road improvements, areas disrupted by construction to be restored, and chip seal resurfaced roadways.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
