Orondo, Palouse streets get a face lift this summer.
The road work will be contained between the Mission and Wenatchee Avenue section of the roads. Both streets will not be closed at the same time.
The city will set barricades at the intersections, and at entrances to alleys on the" streets as they work. Alternative parking entrances will be available, and re-routes will be signed.
Wenatchee City Engineer Gary Owen said the construction schedule is not set yet as the city is still waiting for funding approval from the state. Once received, the city must call for bids and award the contract, which could push the construction to late June or early July.
Owen noted that the city's contract allows for each section of road to be closed for a maximum of two weeks. The city will also provide incentives for the contractor to get the work done in less than two weeks per street.
The sidewalks will remain open.
