Weekly Road Maintenance Update


Malaga-Alcoa Highway/South Wenatchee Avenue Intersection: A contractor for Link Transit is reconfiguring the intersection (the southern intersection near Carlson Loop), making it more suitable for transit busses when they turn from onto South Wenatchee Avenue. The closure of the southern intersection is expected to last through mid-October. A marked detour will be available via Beuzer Street and South Wenatchee Avenue.

Highway 2/Chumstick Highway: On Tuesday, Oct. 4, WSDOT will close U.S. Highway 2 from milepost 84.5 to 99 to perform time-sensitive highway maintenance between Coles Corner and Leavenworth. The closure allows WSDOT crews to expedite prewinter maintenance in several work zones through Tumwater Canyon, including hazard tree removal, shoulder and ditch clearing, and guardrail and pavement repair. The closure is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday only.

During the closure, passenger vehicles can detour on Chumstick Highway; however, this is a county road and is not appropriate for freight. Freight needing access east of Leavenworth during the closure time should use I-90 Snoqualmie to Highway 97 Blewett and approach on Highway 2 westbound. For the safety of the public and crews, all travelers, including bicyclists and pedestrians, must stay out of the closure area.



District 1 (Wenatchee)

The crew will be cleaning culverts and brushing in the district.

District 2 (Cashmere)

The crew will be doing shoulder stabilization work on Olalla Canyon Road as well as patching, cleaning culverts and doing equipment maintenance.

District 3 (Leavenworth)

The crew will be doing shoulder work on White River Road near Lake Wenatchee. Motorists should watch for one-lane, flagger-controlled traffic with minor delays in the work zone. The crew also will be mowing in the district’s upper routes.

District 4 (Entiat)

The crew will be brushing on Entiat River Road.

District 5 (Chelan)

The crew will be working primarily on Union Valley Road, performing scheduled maintenance. The crew will grade the road from the end of the asphalt to the top of Jerry Garton Lane. Material also will be added to the primitive roadway.

On Oct. 6, a contractor will spray a maintenance coat of magnesium chloride and beet juice on the 1.1-mile stretch. The mixture will harden and help maintain the roadway. Motorists should watch for flaggers directing traffic and for increased truck traffic on Union Valley Road during the week of Oct. 3. Plan for minor delays.
