Wenatchee Heights Road to see road construction, improvements come spring

(Photo above: The project starts after the hairpin turn on Wenatchee Heights Road, near Wheeler Hill Road.)

 

In March, a contractor for Chelan County Public Works will begin rehabilitating a portion of Wenatchee Heights Road, from milepost 1.32 (near Wheeler Hill Road) to milepost 2.10 (near Edgemont Drive). See the project's vicinity map.

The project is the second phase of road improvements on Wenatchee Heights Road. In 2020, the county completed similar improvements along a 1.32-mile stretch of the roadway, from Squilchuck Road to Wheeler Hill Road.

This second phase of the project will take about five weeks to complete. It is the county’s goal to have the project completed by early May. To complete the project in that time, the county will be closing most of the work zone and a detour will be implemented via Wheeler Hill Road.

During construction, motorists heading down Wenatchee Heights Road should plan to see one-way, flagger-controlled traffic and a pilot car for the section between Wheeler Hill and Edgemont Drive. The pilot car will lead motorists through the work zone to Wheeler Hill Road, where the detour will begin. The posted speed within the construction limits will be temporarily reduced to 25 mph during construction. When headed up Wenatchee Heights Road, motorists should plan to see flagger-controlled traffic at the intersection of Wheeler Hill Road and Wenatchee Heights. Motorists should plan for minor delays during construction.

When the project is complete, this section of Wenatchee Heights Road will meet current standards, improving the ride of the road as well as its safety and drainage.
