Loop Trail temporarily rerouted this fall during habitat restoration work

by Rachel Hansen | Sep 16, 2020
The Apple Capital Loop Trail between Confluence State Park and Odabashian Bridge will be temporarily rerouted for about two months during a riverbank restoration project.  

Beginning Sept. 21, trail users can follow detour signs along city streets: Euclid Avenue, Penny Road, Isenhart Avenue, and Olds Station Road. The work is estimated to be completed by Nov. 10.

The project will help stabilize the bank along Columbia River and rehabilitate the shoreline with boulders and cobble fill, native trees and shrubs. The work is part of the licensing requirements for Rock Island Dam.

The PUD looked at options to keep the Loop Trail open. The Loop Trail provides the best access to the project site for heavy machinery. After analyzing safety concerns for the public and workers, we determined that providing a detour offered the safest and most cost-efficient approach to finish the job.

In an unrelated project, Confluence boat launch will be closed Oct. 1-31 while crews replace the concrete ramp. The boat launches at Wenatchee Riverfront Park, Linden Tree, and Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park will remain open.
