WENATCHEE — The south entrance to Pybus Public Market is closed as work continues on a new plaza and expected to reopen by July 5.

The north, east and west lots will remain open, and the south lot is accessible from the alley off of Worthen Street.

Construction started last month and is expected to finish in July. The plaza will include European-style pavers, new sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, retractable bollards and a fountain.

Total project cost will be about $510,000, said Pybus Executive Director Steve Robinson, with money coming from state Local Revitalization Financing and the Pybus Market Charitable Foundation. Whitebird Construction is the contractor, and Brad Brisbine of MJ Neal Associates is the architect.
