Commissioners call for bids on Wenatchee Heights Road project

Chelan County commissioners have called for bids on a road construction project that will start this summer on a portion of Wenatchee Heights Road.

The call for bids took place during the commissioners’ regular board meeting on Feb. 25. Bids are due on April 14.

The primary purpose of the Wenatchee Heights Road Improvement Project is to rehabilitate the deteriorating roadway, from its intersection with Squilchuck Road to milepost 1.32. Rehabilitation will be done using a recycling technique called full-depth reclamation, or FDR. FDR, which has been used by Chelan County Public Works with success, is a technique in which the fully flexible pavement section and a portion of the underlying materials are uniformly crushed, pulverized and blended, resulting in a stabilized base course. Then a mat of asphalt is placed on top.

The project also will widen the roadway, including a hairpin turn on the project’s north end. And the project will replace deficient guardrail, upgrade existing shoulders, improve drainage and complete other safety improvements.

Total project costs are about $2.4 million. The engineer’s estimate on the construction costs is between $1.5 million and $2 million.

Construction is expected to begin in August and take about 60 working days. During construction, motorists will encounter one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic; minor traffic delays are expected.
