West Cashmere Bridge awarded $3 million

The Washington State Freight Mobility Strategic Investment Board has awarded Chelan County $3 million for its West Cashmere Bridge Replacement Project.

Federal, state and local funding raised for the project now totals $21.5 million. The county estimates the project will cost $23.5 million.

The recent award from FMSIB means the bridge project remains on track to begin construction in 2020.

In a recent press release, Sen. Brad Hawkins, 12th District, stated he was thrilled about the grant award from FMSIB to the local project.

“This is a huge win for Chelan County and the Cashmere community,” said Hawkins, who was a part of efforts in 2017 to build momentum for the bridge’s replacement. “I am very thankful to FMSIB for recognizing the need for this project and to the many people who have helped make this opportunity successful.”

Learn more about the project, including efforts to donate the historical sections of the bridge, on the Chelan County Public Works website.
