Low-flying helicopters will be delivering power poles in Tumwater Canyon next Wednesday.

The Chelan County PUD is replacing four of the 52-year-old poles along the Old Pipeline Bed Trail about a mile-and-a-half west of Leavenworth.

The trail will be closed from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the PUD said there could be some delays on nearby Highway 2 during the project.

The PUD said the helicopters will take the poles from the Red Bridge parking lot for installation along the powerline.
