TRAVEL ADVISORY
March 17, 2021

Contacts: Lauren Loebsack – Communications (509) 860-0000

Project start date delayed for upgrades to intersection of US 2/Ninth St. in Leavenworth

LEAVENWORTH – A project to improve curb ramps at all four corners of the intersection of US 2 and Ninth Street in Leavenworth has been delayed.

The project was originally scheduled to begin Monday, March 22, but has been delayed for several weeks because the contractor is unable to procure necessary materials for the work. It is uncertain how long the project will be delayed, but the project is expected to start this spring.

This work will require the closure of each corner of the intersection during the course of the project and will intermittently close sections of sidewalk around the project. Work will not restrict access to any businesses or facilities around the project work zone, but there may be occasions when pedestrians will be directed around the work zone. Each corner will require about a week of work, and then work will shift to the next corner of the intersection.

Updates will be shared on the travel alerts page, and on Twitter @WSDOT_East.

Public Comment on Residential Zone Parking on 3/23/2021 »

The City Council seeks community input on a proposal to create permitted residential parking in nine different zones in the City. The proposal wants to protect street parking from expected visitor overflow once paid parking is implemented. The proposal allows residents in selected areas to create restricted parking that allows non-permitted vehicles to park for a limited amount of time while removing such restriction for permitted vehicles.

If you wish to comment on this proposal, please attend the March 23, 2021 City Council Meeting via Zoom Conferencing at 6:30 PM:
