SR 28 - East Wenatchee Corridor Improvements

Project News

Fall 2018

  • Phases 3 and 4 of these Eastside Corridor improvement projects are scheduled to begin design in 2019 and to complete construction in 2027.

This project enhances safety and mobility on SR 28 in East Wenatchee from 9th Street N.E. to Hadley Street with intersection improvements and widening the existing roadway to accommodate five lanes including median turn lanes in places.

Why is WSDOT improving mobility through this section of Sunset Highway?
Additional lanes and access controls such as concrete barricades in the median will address both collisions and traffic back ups through this heavily travelled section of highway.

The End Result
Fewer collisions and smoother traffic flow

Project Benefits
Fewer delays through a safer corridor.

What is the project timeline?

  • Design 2020 through 2024
  • Right of Way 2020 through 2024
  • Construction 2024 through 2027
