WENATCHEE — Chelan County Public Works will host another presentation and take questions on the upcoming Knowles Road improvement project from 5 to 6 p.m. Nov. 4.
The $2.5 million construction project will improve the existing Sunnyslope roadway which is currently too narrow and lacks pedestrian and bike facilities, according to a Chelan County news release. Ongoing drainage issues on the road also need to be corrected.
Construction for the project is anticipated to begin sometime in mid-April and finish in mid-September. Find information about the project at wwrld.us/roadproject.
The project was awarded nearly $1.4 million from a state Transportation Improvement Board's Urban Arterial Program grant. Additional funds will also be drawn from the local county road fund, the Chelan County Stormwater Utility fund and a developer's voluntary mitigation agreement.
The online open house will be held via Zoom, and a link to the event is available at wwrld.us/knowles.
