This summer, a road that commuters use to avoid train delays will be closed for a short time.

The City of Wenatchee has plans to revitalize Thurston Street Underpass behind the Link Transit bus depots and Northwestern Trailways bus terminals.

The $350,000 project will repair concrete and walkways, along with some improvements to lighting.

“On the southeast side of the railroad bridge we will improve the landscaping and there are cameras that will watch down each of the pathways.” Project Engineer Charlotte Mitchell.

The Local Revitalization Fund is responsible for funding the project.

Mitchell said that the Riverfront Area had identified several projects as beneficial.

The project should begin on August 7th. Thurston east of Columbia is expected to be closed for two weeks.
