Walagorski says motorists in the Chelan Valley should be prepared for up to 20 minute delays on SR 150 near the No-See-Um intersection 24 hours a day through Wednesday evening.

If all goes as planned, traffic will be routed around the project through a detour sometime Thursday afternoon. That detour will remain in place through the summer and into the fall when the project is expected to be completed.
