(Wenatchee, WA) Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has issued the following closures related to the George Sellar Bridge.
- Monday and Tuesday nights (only), from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., expect lane restrictions and detours at Grant Rd. Monday night-crews are going to be working in the SE and NE quadrants of the intersection. NB SR 28 will be narrowed to one lane with no right turn up Grant Rd.
- Tuesday night-crews will be working in the SW and NW quadrants. SB SR 28 traffic will be narrowed to one lane with no right turns into Fred Meyer.
- Monday through Friday nights (this week only), from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., expect the loop ramp on the east end of the bridge to be closed while crews cut the pavement to install new pipe crossings. Follow the detour signs. When the ramp is open during the day, expect to encounter steel plates or temporarily pavement patches over the cuts.
- Until May, the new third eastbound lane is closed and traffic from the George Sellar Bridge is detoured to a temporary loop ramp while tunnels are installed for the bicycle/pedestrian path and the existing ramp is widened.
- As of last Wednesday, all three precast tunnels were in place and work is now underway on the wing-walls that connect to them.
- Work also continues on structural earth retaining walls below Top Foods and north of Fred Meyer. The work is off the road and does not affect traffic except as trucks access the site from a temporary entrance off the loop ramp.
- A section of Riverview Drive remains closed to southbound traffic between 3rd St. SE and Mitchell Landscaping (the first business north of 3rd) and is restricted to one-way traffic northbound. Crews continue forming and pouring the last section of the retaining wall on the north side of Grant Rd. below the Top Foods parking lot.
- Through Sept. 2012, the southern extension of the Apple Capital Loop Trail from the pedestrian bridge to Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park remains closed for reconstruction of trail sections including three new tunnels where the trail conflicts with the new ramp construction. Bicyclists and pedestrians are detoured to Valley Mall Parkway between 9th and 3rd Streets. (Note the bicycle/pedestrian trail from the east end of the bridge up to Valley Mall Parkway remains open.)
