Kittitas County, WA -
Kittitas County Public Works has three road projects currently in construction. All projects have the potential to cause traffic delays.
N.F. Teanaway Rd over Lick Creek has a bypass road that is now being used while the contractor, J&K Earthworks performs the work needed to replace two undersized culverts with a larger box culvert and realign the creek. A traffic light on a timer has been added to direct a single lane of traffic through a temporary bypass road. The temporary bypass road is built to accommodate vehicles up to 45 ft in length.
Vantage Hwy Overlay has begun and is between MP 21.25-MP 27.51. The contractor, Interstate Concrete and Asphalt Company dba American Rock will begin road construction August 2nd. Delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected at this stage of construction. During the paving process, a pilot car will be present to guide traffic through the work zone.
Fairview Rd at MP 5.13-MP 5.42 (just north of Brick Mill Rd) will be paved by county forces in August, the final phase of this project. Last fall, Advantage Dirt realigned Coleman Creek which crossed under Fairview Rd three times in a narrow portion of the road. Advantage Dirt also installed a large box culvert, widened the road and had guardrail installed. The contracted work was completed in November 2020.
Please follow posted speed limits within the construction work zone.
