US 2 (MP 89.9-93) Tumwater Canyon Bridge Replacements
Daily, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., expect no traffic restrictions while crews bring equipment into the work zones, off the roadway.
In this $8.5 million project, Selland Construction Co. crews are replacing three bridges, over Drury Creek and (two miles upstream) the Wenatchee River Green Bridge in Tumwater Canyon and the Chiwaukum Creek Bridge, 3/4 of a mile west of the top of the Canyon. Work also includes new turning lanes into the Tumwater Campground. Construction began August 1, 2011 and is expected to take until September of 2013 to complete.

Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.,expect single lane, flagger controlled traffic with delays of less than 10 minutes. When work allows, the road will be open with no restrictions.
This week crews continue drilling rock bolts and dowels on the slope.
In this $3.1 million project, Janod Inc. crews are scaling an unstable rock slope and installing netting, rock bolts and dowels along the slope two miles north of Wenatchee. Crews also constructed a temporary shoulder “shoofly” traffic lane (towards the train tracks), that provides a work zone for cranes to access the slopes. Construction began Feb. 21, 2012 and should be complete by June.

SR 28, Jct. US 2/97 to 9th St. – Eastmont Extension Stage 1
This Douglas County project is under construction. A Ribbon Cutting to commemorate completion of the Canyon B Bridge is planned for May 2nd. An on-line construction camera is in place to monitor the progress. The next phase, a 3.2 mile extension of Eastmont Avenue, will be advertised for private contractor bids later in May. The entire project is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2013.
SR 28 East End of the George Sellar Bridge Improvements
Until May, the new third eastbound lane on the bridge deck is closed and traffic is detoured to a temporary loop ramp while tunnel installation for the bicycle/pedestrian path continues and the existing ramp is widened. All three precast tunnels are now in place and work on the wing-walls that connect to them continues.
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.)
In this $16.4 million project, KLB Construction Co. crews are building a bypass for southbound SR 28 traffic to the west of the Grant Road intersection. It also widens eastbound Grant Road to allow a triple left turn from southbound SR 28. Work began Sept. 6, 2011 and should be complete in spring of 2013.
