Project improves pavement structure, increases vertical clearance at RR trestle, replaces a culvert with a bridge; and constructs a shared-use path through the trestle. Project extends from the intersection of Chumstick Hwy. for 0.5 miles.
Why are we Building This Project?
North Road is a rural major collector and may be used as a detour route for SR 2. This project will improve the pavement structure to an all-weather road. The RR trestle has a vertical clearance of 13-feet and is frequently struck by trucks. This project proposes to lower the roadway at the trestle 1– to 1½–feet. The existing partial fish passage barrier culvert will be replaced with a bridge and natural stream channel to provide year-round passage to endangered and threatened fish species. In addition, this project includes a shared-use path element through the RR trestle, which will allow connectivity through the trestle from Leavenworth to the proposed Amtrak Icicle Station which is scheduled to be constructed this year.
