In order to get the chip sealing done before winter weather hits the high elevations again, paving is going to start on Monday:
SR 20 (MP148-178) North Cascades Highway Chip Seal
Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., expect up to 20 minute delays with flagger controlled traffic through work zones where crews are installing rumble strips on the centerline and fog sealing the Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) pavement repair patches and beginning the chip seal resurfacing. Paving is starting west of Rainy Pass, working east. There is transportation through the work zone provided for bicylists.
In this $2.7 million project, Central Washington Asphalt Co. crews are resurfacing 30 miles of highway over Washington and Rainy Passes. The construction began with several weeks of work bringing guardrail up to current standards. That was followed with pre-level (Hot-Mix-Asphalt) patching of damaged pavement sections. Chip sealing begins 7/18. Work began June 8 and is scheduled to be complete by October.
