Thank you for visiting the US 2 Upper Wenatchee Valley Corridor Transportation Study project website. The Chelan-Douglas Transportation Council worked with the City of Leavenworth, Chelan County, the Washington State Department of Transportation and Link Transit to study options to improve mobility and safety for all modes of travel along the US 2 corridor between Coles Corner and Cashmere.
The Chelan-Douglas Transportation Council is pleased to present the finalized Corridor Study Report (24 MB)!
The study report remains in draft form with the final adoption date on hold, given circumstances with the COVID-19 pandemic. Public agencies have been advised by the Attorney General to hold public meetings only for the purpose of conducting business that is necessary, routine and cannot be deferred – board action related to this study does not meet that test. When restrictions are lifted, CDTC will schedule a governing board action to accept the final study report.
After the board reviews and accepts the plan, the study becomes a source of information and guidance for use by project partners WSDOT, Chelan County, the City of Leavenworth and Link Transit as they plan for the future of the state highways, county roads, city streets and transit services within the Upper Wenatchee Valley area.
CDTC studies are informational and advisory. However, any of the recommendations in the study that the project partners choose to advance in their own plans or capital improvement programs will be added into CDTC’s Regional Transportation Plan in a future update. These projects would then be identified as a regionally-endorsed “need,” which helps them compete for state and federal funding.
New pedestrian signals
You may have noticed that new pedestrian signals were installed on US 2 in Leavenworth. The project team has heard from several community members about the impact of the new pedestrian signals on traffic flow on US 2. The signals, installed as a result of a project undertaken by the City of Leavenworth and WSDOT (Washington State Department of Transportation), have been adjusted several times to increase their efficiency and seem to be operating better now. If you have additional feedback about the new signals, you can contact the WSDOT Communications Office in Wenatchee at 509-667-2815 to share your thoughts.
