2013-2014 Road Fund PavingPaving crews under contract with Washington County's Department of Land Use & Transportation will soon begin paving work on a number of major county roads. Much of this work will be done at night to reduce disruption to traffic. The county and its contractor, Baker Rock Resources, are working together to make sure traffic moves as smoothly as possible through this necessary but inconvenient work.

Advisory signs will be posted before the work starts. Roads will remain open, but may be limited to one-way traffic controlled by flaggers. Expect up to 15-minute delays. Use alternate routes if possible.

Current road work schedules are posted on the Washington County Roads web site at Schedules may change due to weather, contractors' schedules, or availability of materials.

For more information, please e-mail or call 503-846-ROAD (503-846-7623).

Washington County and Baker Rock Resources thank you for your patience and careful attention to driving.
