Virtual open house on Sunnyslope road project will be held Thursday


Chelan County will hold a virtual open house Thursday to explain the Knowles Road improvement project and take questions.

The county says the Sunnyslope road serves an area that is expected to double in growth in the next 20 years and the current roadway is too narrow, lacks pedestrian and bike facilities and has drainage issues that need addressing.

The $2.5-million-dollar project is expected to begin in spring or summer of 2022 and take up to 10 weeks in two phases.

The open house will be on Zoom from 5 to 6 p.m.

Details on how to participate and an overview of the project are available on the Chelan County Public Works website.
