The Confluence Parkway is a proposed 2.5-mile bypass project to mitigate clogging traffic on North Wenatchee Avenue. It includes a new bridge arching over the Wenatchee River. A traffic analysis reported by the city claimed capacity would jump from 40,000 to 60,000 cars per day on the North Wenatchee Avenue route.
