A section of Icicle Road near Leavenworth will be reduced to one lane on weekdays near the Snow Lakes Trailhead beginning Wednesday and lasting until Sept. 9.

The City of Leavenworth, Icicle Peshastin Irrigation District and Trout Unlimited are installing a new water mainline, a fish screen at the city’s water supply diversion and making fish passage improvements along Icicle Creek.

Traffic will be limited to one lane for a short stretch on weekdays with flaggers controlling traffic.

The construction area is between mile 4.7 and 4.9.

The projects are designed to improve city water supply and enhance fish recovery.

A second phase of the work will begin next fall on the Snow Lake Trail bridge and Icicle Peshastin Irrigation District fish screen.

That phase will continue into summer 2021.
