of Road Maintenance Operations
Jefferson County Road Maintenance Division will begin their annual lane
striping on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. Work is anticipated to be completed by September
30, 2016. Motorists should expect minor traffic slowdowns or delays on
County roads during this period.
striping operations typically consist of two vehicles traveling single
file, separated by approximately 300 feet. The lead striping vehicle will
spray-paint the roadway center line and edge lines. A sign will be mounted
on the rear of the follow-behind vehicle warning drivers against passing
the striping vehicle and interfering with painting operations.
NO TRAFFIC IS
ALLOWED BETWEEN THE LEAD PAINT STRIPING VEHICLE AND THE FOLLOW-BEHIND
Jefferson County and the striping contractor will not be responsible for
paint removal on vehicles that travel within the wet paint zone between
striping operation vehicles. Fresh paint can be very difficult to remove
from your vehicle. Drivers in the vicinity of lane striping operations are
cautioned against driving on any painted lines. New paint is typically dry
enough to drive on by the time the follow-behind vehicle passes any freshly
painted stripes. Questions may be directed to the Jefferson Co. Dept. of
Public Works, 623 Sheridan St., Port Townsend, WA 98368. Phone:
360-385-9160 or 360-385-0890.

County Noxious Weed Control Board is looking for volunteers!
Noxious weeds are a major ecological threat and have a severe
detrimental effect on the economy. Controlling these weeds greatly supports
your local natural areas (forests, meadows, or watersheds), the
accompanying wildlife (salmon, deer, or bees), and the local economy
(farmers, orchards, or forestry).
The Jefferson County Noxious Weed Control Board has an
increased budget and staff this year and aims to play a much more impactful
role in noxious weed management from here on out. One of our main goals is
to set up a large volunteer base which we could call upon whenever high
priority infestations cannot be controlled otherwise.
If you are interested in signing up to be on our volunteer
list and receive notifications for weed control events please contact the
Weed Board Coordinator Joost Besijn by email at email@example.com or
call (360) 379-5610 ext. 205.
