EAST WENATCHEE — Traffic along 10th Street N.E. will be disrupted from August to October due to work on water mains to support Microsoft’s expansion.
Pipkin Construction will be doing the work for the East Wenatchee Water District from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 2 to Oct. 29 from North Stark Avenue to the east end of 10th Street N.E., according to a news release. The road will be closed in sections and stages with signed detours and through traffic will be blocked along the sections under construction.
