This project will improve Wenatchee Heights Road (12990), which is a Rural Minor Collector that serves as the main access to the Wenatchee Heights area from the City of Wenatchee. It serves residential and school bus traffic, orchardists, and outdoor enthusiasts. The beginning of the project will connect to Upper Squilchuck (CRP642), which was constructed in 2012. The end of the project is within a mile of last year's Stemilt Loop Road, Phase III, which also received RATA funding.
The primarily purpose of this project will propose a HMA overlay to prevent further deterioration of the existing roadway, which falls below the level of minimal standards (42 to 70 rating), and maintain it at the least possible life cycle cost. In addition to the pavement rehabilitation, the project will investigate and mitigate the settlement/slide, replace deficient guardrail, and other safety improvements.
