Current Closures/Restrictions

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.

31st Street NW

31st St NW will be closed at NW Cascade Avenue from 7 a.m. Monday, August 2, 2021 to 6 p.m. Friday, August 6, 2021.  This closure may occasionally include flagger controlled traffic, or short temporary closures, on NW Cascade Avenue.  A signed detour route will be available during the closure.  The purpose of the closure is so that Smith Excavation can repair a leaking irrigation main for a private irrigation group of homeowners.  For questions or concerns, contact David Haehl at (206) 601-4883, or Gregg Smith at (509) 421-6036.

N. Ashland Ave

N. Ashland Ave, from 24th St NE, northward to Hadley St NE, will be closed to through traffic from 6 a.m. July 6, 2021 to 7 p.m. July 30, 2021.  A signed detour route will be available, and local access will be allowed throughout the closure.  The closure is authorized to provide for the safe and efficient installation of utilities in support of the Baker Estates Subdivision.  For questions or more information, contact Pete Cruickshank of Smith Excavation at 509-669-1754, or the developer Craig Thompson at 425-417-3473.
