WENATCHEE — A costly new road that would bypass North Wenatchee Avenue and require another bridge over the Wenatchee River is gaining support from city and regional officials and may have a chance for partial state funding next year.

The Wenatchee City Council gave its support for the project on Thursday and will ask elected officials in surrounding communities to do the same in order to better the chances of getting funding, which could cost as much as $200 million.
