Seasonal Road Weight Restrictions

McNeil Canyon Road - Closed Until 2025 to Vehicles Weighing Over 10,000 lbs. 

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, McNeil Canyon Road in Douglas County, Washington, closed to the operation of motor vehicles weighing more than 10,000 pounds. The closure is from the intersection of Rd. C NW (SR 172) and Rd. 14 NW (SR 172) and Beebe Bridge on US Hwy 97. The closure is due to road condition concerns, redesign, construction, and accidents caused by vehicle equipment failure. 

At a public hearing on September 19, 2023, the Douglas County Board of Commissioners adopted an ordinance to enact a new Local Access Special Permit for vehicles exceeding 10,000 pounds in weight to regain use of McNeil Canyon Road. Interested drivers can access the Special Motor Vehicle Permit online, or in person at the Public Services Building located at 140 19th Street NW in East Wenatchee. Most permits can be issued on the same day if the applicant can provide the necessary information.

Affected vehicles without a permit during the McNeil Canyon Road closure can use three alternate routes, including US Hwy 2 Pine Canyon Road, Road C NW (SR 172), and Bridgeport Hill Road.
