Community meeting planned to talk about Peshastin Bridge repairs

Chelan County Public Works will host a community meeting on Oct. 12 to take comments from the public on repairs to the Peshastin Bridge scheduled for next year.

Spanish interpreters will be available for the meeting.

The Peshastin Bridge, built in 1932 across the Wenatchee River, could be temporarily closed for about four weeks while a contractor replaces the bridge’s deck. Because of the narrow width of the bridge, the contractor would not be able to close only one lane while working. The bridge’s expansion joints, which allow the concrete bridge to naturally expand and contract, also will be repaired.

The meeting will be held 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 12, at Peshastin Memorial Hall, 10204 Main St. Staff from Public Works will be on hand to talk about the project and the traffic impacts that will come with it. Repairs to the Peshastin Bridge will cost about $2.3 million.

The Peshastin Bridge repairs are part of a larger project that includes repairs to a variety of bridges in the county. Also scheduled for deck repairs in 2024 are the Ardenvoir (Mad River Road) and Chiwawa River (Chiwawa Loop Road) bridges. Expansion joints will be repaired on the Chelan Falls (Chelan Falls Road), New Griffith (Entiat River Road) and Stone Hill (Colockum Pass Road) bridges. The repairs are being paid for with a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
