Traffic will be impacted at Odabashian Bridge and US 2/Easy Street area beginning May 2

information released by WSDOT

Work to rehabilitate the pavement and bridge decks on US 2 between US 2/Easy St., and the intersection of US 2/Cascade Ave. at the north end of Wenatchee will require lane and ramp closures for two weeks beginning Sunday, May 2.

Sunday night both eastbound and westbound traffic over the Odabashian Bridge will be reduced to a single lane and shifted to allow the contractor to expedite work.  The contractor will close both of the westbound lanes and two way traffic will be shifted onto the eastbound lanes.  When the work on the westbound lanes is complete, two way traffic will be shifted onto those lanes so the contractor can work on the eastbound lanes.

There will also be intermittent ramp closures with signed detours during these two weeks and a 35 m.p.h. reduced speed through the work zone.  These traffic control measures are expected to cause longer than normal travel times, particularly during morning and afternoon commutes.

To shorten the overall time these closures and lane reductions are in place, the contractor will work 24 hours a day.  This work is scheduled to be completed and normal traffic patterns restored Monday, May 17.

Updates will be shared on the project webpage, WSDOT’s travel alerts page, and on Twitter at @WSDOT_East.
