Before-The expansion joints were replaced on the SR 285 NB bridge over the Wenatchee River.


This contract combined four projects, significantly reducing costs.

Two were P-1 Paving/Safety Restoration Roadway Preservation projects:

  • (West Wenatchee Paving) 1.5 miles of US 2/97 was paved with asphalt including ramps from Lower Sunnyslope Road to Easy Street and replaced northbound SR 285 Wenatchee River Bridge expansion joints.
  • (South of Rocky Reach Dam Paving) 2 miles of US 97A was paved with asphalt from the Odabashian Bridge to Bob's Apple Barrel Mulch.

One, an I-2 Collision Prevention Safety Improvement Program Project:

  • (North Wenatchee-Ohme Garden Roundabout) Built a large single-lane roundabout on US 97A at Ohme Garden and Stemilt Warehouse Roads.

A Chelan County project to add sidewalk on Easy St. from US 2/97 to Melody Lane was incorporated into the project to reduce costs and maximize a federal grant.

Construction began July 16, 2012 and was complete May 2013
