US 2 - Wenatchee Area Paver

Project news

Two virtual public events are scheduled for March 2 to share information about the benefits of this project and the traffic control schedule during construction this spring, as well as an opportunity for the public to ask questions.  There is no need to pre-register for either of these events.

US 2 Wenatchee area paving project virtual public events information:

Work is scheduled to begin on April 12, 2021.  The project will require a partial closure of US 2 through the project length to allow the contractor to perform necessary bridge deck repair.  This partial closure will reduce traffic in each direction to one lane, and shift traffic on US 2 over the Odabashian Bridge to either the eastbound or westbound lanes, depending on the work. 

This partial closure is scheduled to begin on May 2, 2021, and will be in place for about two weeks.  Updates on the partial closure will be made available through the WSDOT travel alert map, travel advisories, and on social media.

On December 28, 2020, Central Washington Asphalt, Inc. of Moses Lake was awarded the contract with a low bid of $3,068,000. 

Needs & benefits

The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the pavement and bridge decks on US 2 from milepost 119.16 to milepost 120.57, north of Wenatchee.  The project will also reconstruct the headers on several bridges to better preserve the current structures.


Work is scheduled to begin on April 12, 2021 and be completed in June 2021.
