Farmington Road asphalt work begins


September 20, 2018

The second half of a hot-mix asphalt overlay project on Farmington Road began Monday at Tekoa, with paving headed south toward Farmington on the project expected to last into next week.

The work, being done by Central Washington Asphalt of Moses Lake, will cover five miles of road from Tekoa to the intersection of Warner Road, at the former railroad stop Seltice.

Work began last week with three days of crack sealing to prepare for laying asphalt.

Pilot cars are being used in both directions to aid traffic, for which drivers are seeing five to 15-minute delays.

The estimated two-week project includes set-up, staging, paving and striping. The overlay extends 600-700 feet into Tekoa.

The first half of the project, covering five miles from Farmington to Seltice, was done last summer.
