Cashmere bridge-work presentation goes virtual during social distancing

Goodwin Bridge outside Cashmere, now undergoing a $25 million replacement.

CASHMERE — Major transportation projects usually feature a public open house. But those are off-limits during the pandemic, so Chelan County is hosting a virtual open-house for its long-in-the-making West Cashmere Bridge replacement.

The $25 million project is now underway, and should take about two years to complete. The county Public Works department offers a virtual tour through its website so taxpayers can see the ins and outs of the project.
