Travelers can expect more delays on Highway 2 between Wenatchee and Leavenworth this week as the state continues work at the site of a mudslide last week.

The slide struck a guardrail and partially blocked the eastbound lane of the heavily traveled highway just east of Leavenworth last Monday.

State Department of Transportation crews worked on the site much of last Thursday, forcing closures of 20 minutes at a time.

The departmen says on Tuesday and Wednesday they’ll be be doing rock scaling work with more 20-minute closures between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
