Status

Fall 2014

The 2012 legislature funded this project for planning and design. The two recommended alternatives following an engineering study are to install dedicated left turn lanes or build a roundabout.

No construction funding has yet been approved.

An Open House was held in Chelan Nov. 28, 2013. 142 people signed in and filled out 55 comment forms. 30 favored a roundabout, 11 opposed it, 4 favored left turn lanes and 7 proposed other solutions or said no improvements are needed and 3 addressed other issues.

We continue to seek your comments. Please email us.

This I-2 Highway Capital Improvement Program Collision Prevention Safety Project would construct improvements to the intersection of SR 150 and No See-Um Road between Manson and Chelan.

Why is WSDOT improving this intersection?
Even with hundreds of yet-to-be-developed residential lots that will be accessed through this intersection, the current average traffic count has already risen to 10,000 vehicles per day. These volumes are producing more and longer delays for side-road traffic - the result of the lack of gaps to turn onto the highway. Faced with these conditions, drivers are sometimes making decisions that result in a collision or a near miss. 

The proposed alternatives are to reduce delays and collisions. 


The End Result
A new intersection to accommodate higher traffic volumes while reducing the potential for serious collisions.

Project Benefits

  • Reduced potential for serious collisions and improved traffic flow
  • Better motorist information from new signs and striping
  • Extended roadway life with new pavement
  • Reduced maintenance costs 

What is the project timeline?
In 2012, the project was funded for design, but not construction.  Additional funding for construction must be provided by the legislature.
