Current Closures/Restrictions

Kentucky Avenue

S. Kentucky Ave, from 6th St SE to 8th St SE, will have both the northbound and the southbound lanes shifted to the west, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, from 7 a.m. Friday, September 17th, 2021 to 6 p.m. Friday, October 15th, 2021.  Normal single lane traffic remains available, however, a work zone will be in effect along the western shoulder which triggers the need for the lane shift.  During this period of lane shift, from 6 a.m. Monday September 27th, 2021, to 6 p.m. Wednesday, September 29th, 2021, this section of road will be closed entirely to all through traffic – the lane shift converts to a closure, and then back to a lane shift.  Local access will be allowed at all times.

The purpose of the lane shift and the closure is to allow for the safe and efficient installation of utility, stormwater, and roadway improvements associated with the Kentucky Court Subdivision.  For questions, complaints, or concerns, contact Paul Armstrong of Selland Construction at 509-421-0041, or Jerry Zook of Selland Construction at 509-668-0889.

10th Street NE

The East Wenatchee Water District (EWWD) will have multiple sections of 10th St NE in East Wenatchee closed to through-traffic, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., August 2, 2021 to October 29, 2021.  The closures extend from the EWWD’s existing water tower reservoir at 1711 10th St NE on the west end, all the way to N. Stark Avenue on the east end of 10th St NE.  Occasional single-lane-flagger-controlled or shoulder closures will start immediately as the contractor prepares for construction by installing work-zone signs and exploring the ground to learn about existing conditions.  Due to the large scope of the project, the road will be closed in sections and stages, with signed detour routes always available.  The contractor and the EWWD will determine the extent of the closure as the work progresses, and will work to limit disruptions as much as possible.  Local access for residents and landowners will be coordinated and provided by the contractor, Pipkin Construction.  The purpose of the closure is to allow for the safe and efficient installation of domestic water main improvements supporting the expansion of Microsoft’s operations in the Pangborn Industrial Area, as well as general routine upgrades to the EWWD’s facilities.

For questions, concerns, access requirements or complaints, contact Mario Johnson of Pipkin Construction at (509) 669-1777, or Darrin Flitton of Pipkin Construction at (509) 669-6270, or Ryan Peterson of RH2 Engineering at (509) 886-6770, or Colby Thorpe of EWWD at (509) 630-9719.
