Bridge inspections in Chelan County could mean traffic delays


Four separate bridge inspections around Chelan County this week could slow travel.

Chelan County Public Works says the inspections will begin Tuesday on the Sleepy Hollow Bridge on Sleepy Hollow Road from 9 a.m. to noon.

Two inspections will take place on Entiat River Road on Wednesday, the Cowen-Entiat Bridge from 8 to 11 a.m. and the New Griffith Bridge from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Then on Thursday, crews will be inspecting the Chelan Falls 2 Bridge from 10 a.m. to noon.

While inspections are underway, traffic will be reduced to one lane on the impacted bridges, with flaggers directing traffic.

Minor traffic delays are expected.

Travelers are asked to find alternate routes, if possible during the bridge inspections.
