Weekly Road Maintenance Update

Road Construction & Maintenance Update: Week of Sept. 20

To minimize potential exposure to COVID-19 to staff and the public, we encourage you to fill out any permit applications online and to call or email our office with questions. Call 667-6415 or email public.works@co.chelan.wa.us. Please wear a mask if visiting a county office.

 

COUNTY CONSTRUCTION

West Cashmere Bridge Replacement Project:  Nighttime construction over Highway 2 that was scheduled for this week has been postponed until the week of Sept. 27. The delay is caused by delivery issues we are experiencing with the new bridge’s girders. Watch the project’s page for updates.

Slide Ridge Retrofit: This project is temporarily shut down because of the ongoing Twenty-Five Mile Fire. People who do not live on South Lakeshore Road are asked to avoid the area so emergency responders and equipment can get through. South Lakeshore Road is closed to the public at Slide Ridge. Roads closed due to wildfires are on our website.

 

ROAD ALERTS

Chumstick Highway: On Wednesday Sept. 22, crews with the Washington State Department of Transportation will be performing maintenance work on Highway 2 between Coles Corner and Leavenworth (milepost 84.5 to 99.0). The work will require a closure of the highway in that section from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists will be detoured onto Chumstick Highway. Property and business owners along the county road can expect to see more traffic that day.

East Leavenworth & Icicle roads: On Saturday, Sept. 25, hundreds of people will gather for the Autumn Leaf Parade in Leavenworth. The annual parade requires the closure of a portion of Highway 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the closure, motorists will be detoured onto East Leavenworth Road or Icicle Road, depending upon which direction they are approaching Leavenworth. Property and business owners along the county roads can expect to see more traffic that day.
