I ran in to some chip sealing on Cain Lake Road in Skagit county today. I guess I will have to avoid that road for a few weeks.

well...did some re-con today....and I'm thinking the crew that was setting up camp in my front yard didnt have there facts right, as the road out of Dallas southbound has no signage up stating that they plan to do any road work, so with that, I found:

the road coming into Dallas from hwy 22 looks to have been chip sealed, but they already swept it and its in good shape....

& the road from Rickreal into Dallas is being done this week and maybe into next....

so if you avoid the Rickreal road (Ellendale) you should be ok next week!...and it looks like I may get out on bike tomorrow morning for a quick ride before it gets to hot out!..

You're talking about Kings Valley Road, not Kings Valley Highway, right?

yuppers.....oregon seems to do a better job at chip seal than washington does....at least from what I have seen here so far...I rode them over weekend and they are in good shape!.....was suprised by how well they where!....I think they are out near Independence now doing roads there...

the only real bitching I had, other than them doing chip seal, was 3 of the work crew desided to use my front yard as a break room, sitting out there smoking in the dry grass!......I really dont need a fire in my yard!...very dry here!
