Recent rains led to a rock slide on the Chesaw Road Sunday. Rocks, dirt and debris slid off the sandstone cliffs onto the highway. County crews had one lane cleared and were going to continue work on Monday.

OROVILLE – A rock slide, which included rocks, dirt and tree debris, blocked the Chesaw Road between Nine Mile Road and Rise Road on Sunday, April 8.

Okanogan County Public Works crews soon had one lane cleared and will be working on opening both lanes this week.

Due to the rain received the last few days, persons should watch for similar activity throughout the county, states the Okanogan County Emergency Management Department.
