Improvements to congested Highway 2 being studied


Sometimes, traffic on Highway 2 between Coles Corner and Cashmere is a challenge.

Well now, there are people working to do something about it.

Those people include the Chelan-Douglas Transportation Council., which has launched a study.

In addition, the regional planning organization is working with the city of Leavenworth, Chelan County, the Washington State Department of Transportation and Link Transit to study options.

Ultimately their goal is to improve mobility and safety for all modes of travel along the U.S. 2 corridor.

The team has put together some ideas and now they want to get your input.

At the end of the study, the project team will identify a set of near and long-term improvements for all modes of travel, including transit, freight, cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Public comments will accepted until July 31s.
