What to expect

Rock scaling work on SR 971 began March 7 with a complete road closure between milepost 10 and 11.64.  The road reopened to traffic April 14.  Some finish work such as pavement repair will be done later this spring and will require flagger controlled traffic. 

Snow and rain forced a delay of day long closures on US 97A at milepost 211, south of Entiat.  Day long closures on US 97A  April 25 and wrapped up May 6.
