The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will be paving Highway 2, including the section of this highway that runs through Leavenworth city limits. Construction is anticipated to start in early April 2023 and be substantially complete by May 26, 2023. Within City limits, the majority of the work will occur during night shift, between the hours of 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. Each week, the contractor can begin working at 8:00 PM on Sunday and is required to be off the road at 6:00 AM on Friday.

Frequently Asked Questions:


What is the purpose of this project?
The goal is to complete preservation work on the existing roadway surfacing along Highway 2.


Where is this project located?
All asphalt along Highway 2 within City limits will be repaved. WSDOT’s project extends beyond City limits.


Why is work taking place at night?
US 2 sees less traffic during night hours. Therefore, this project will take place during off-peak hours to minimize impacts to the traveling public: 8 pm to 6 am Sundays through Fridays.


What work is taking place on 12th Street?
The City of Leavenworth has partnered with WSDOT to have 12th Street, from Highway 2 to Front Street, paved by WSDOT’s contractor. This is a cost effective way for the City to have pavement preservation work completed on a City street.
