A heads up for you folks in the Chelan area, next week, work will kick-off for the final phases of the Woodin Avenue Bridge Project.
Over the next couple of months, contractors plan to remove existing curbs and sidewalks from the bridge towards downtown, work on storm water improvements and start construction on the Landing Park.
There are no bridge closures anticipated, only short stops in traffic to allow equipment and trucks in and out of the work areas. Pedestrian access continues to remain open at all times with bicyclists using the same area to cross.
For safety, bicyclists are asked to walk their bikes due to the limited space and compromised condition of the roadway.
Nearly all aspects of the project are expected to be completed before Memorial Day Weekend, the end of May.
