CHELAN — Chelan County crews removed the debris Wednesday along South Lakeshore Road and the road is back open.

The road was covered in 8 feet of mud, rocks and debris that descended from Slide Ridge after flooding on Tuesday. It is the second time this year that the road has been blocked in the same spot.

The last cleanup effort cost the county over $100,000.
