Why can't my gravel road be paved?
Yakima County maintains nearly 570 miles of gravel roads throughout the County. Yearly, the County is able to pave 6-10 miles of gravel roads based on available funding sources. To minimize airborne dust on gravel roadways, the Road Maintenance Department also performs a one-time yearly dust abatement treatment on most gravel roads.

To find out when your gravel road may be dust abated or paved, contact our Road Maintenance Department at 509-574-2300.
