See the following link for a map of roads to be chip sealed for the 2019 season, or log onto the Klamath County Public Works website at  Weekly updates will be published of the specific roads being worked on.

In general, flagging stations will be set up at the end of the work zone and delays will be 0 to 20 minutes for the motoring public.  Other work is occurring through the County but we are only listing the major items in this announcement. 

There may be adjustments of work schedules due to weather or other items outside of the County’s control (breakdown of equipment, material/resource availability, etc.)  Please do not contact the County if you do not see work occurring, it could be finished already or will be rescheduled.

Please drive slow through Chip Seal and Paint Stripe areas.  This will reduce damage to the Chip Sealed and Painted areas.  It will also reduce the probability of oil or paint getting on your vehicle.

Klamath County Public Works and the Board of County Commissioners appreciate the motoring publics’ patience during the repair season for our local roads and bridges.  If you have any questions regarding work, please contact the Public Works Department at (541) 883-4696.
