City of Chelan
2017 - 2019
The Woodin Avenue Bridge Project wraps together many efforts, including bridge restoration, safety improvements, and upgrading utilities to accommodate future needs. The project also makes the area more inviting, widening 1,900 feet of sidewalks, adding 1,200 feet of new bike lanes, enhancing streetscapes, and adding the new Woodin Avenue Landing Park.
The bridge is the front door to downtown Chelan and approaching these improvements as a single, coordinated project created efficiencies and limited the disruption to residents, businesses, and visitors alike.
SCJ Alliance has been involved in many aspects of the project from public outreach, preliminary design, and estimating to final design and construction management. We also created and manage a project website and do weekly e-blast updates to keep residents up-to-date on progress and closures. In one of our featured videos, Project Manager Dan Ireland shared how the improvements have impacted the community.
The project includes replacement of 1,200 feet of waterline with a large chunk of that running under the bridge and supported with new utility hangers. SCJ also did the design for pavers, ADA curb ramps, colored concrete sidewalks, permanent signing, landscaping, and irrigation installations.
The Landing Park was designed with maximum accessibility in mind, including for those with disabilities. It creates an inviting space for both locals and visitors alike and increases access to Lake Chelan and the existing PUD dock.
“This has been a very rewarding project to work on. The collaborative approach with the City of Chelan, the Historic Chelan Downtown Association, and other community stakeholders has resulted in a tremendous transformation of this area for visitors and residents alike.”
