Highway 2 at Cashmere will have single-lane closures the next two nights as crews continue work on the West Cashmere Bridge replacement project.

Chelan County Public Works says the contractor on the bridge project will be installing overhang brackets on the new bridge both tonight and Tuesday from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

Flaggers will be directing eastbound highway traffic onto a one-lane bypass near the river off Hay Canyon Road while westbound traffic will be directed into one lane.

In addition to replacing the old bridge, the project involves a highway overpass and roundabout.
