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.

Upgrades coming to intersection of US 2/Ninth St. in Leavenworth

LEAVENWORTH – A project that will improve curb ramps at all four corners of the intersection of US 2 and Ninth Street in Leavenworth will begin Monday, March 22.

The project will replace the current failing and deficient curb ramp facilities with new concrete ramps that will improve pedestrian safety and mobility. The project will also upgrade the existing crossing push buttons.

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. It will not restrict access to any business or facilities around the project work zone, but there may be occasions when the 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. The project is expected to be complete in early May.

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