Okanogan County Public Works Omak Riverside Eastside 2R Project, SEPA 2019-10
Threshold SEPA Determination
Okanogan County Public Works is proposing to correct rutting and deterioration of the existing roadway with a pre-level lift and a wearing course of hot mix asphalt (HMA).

Existing culverts will be extended or beveled pipe ends added as needed. Exposed ends of existing Jersey Barriers will have material place and shaped around them for cover. Clear zone hazards within the existing right-of-way, such as debris, trees, etc., will be assessed and addressed during the project. No excavation will occur and all work will be restricted to previously disturbed areas. No detour route will be required; rather traffic control will be used to minimize the impact to the public.
