Wash., Ore., Idaho – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, facilities and offices will be closed on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, to honor the memory of former-president George H.W. Bush, who passed away on Nov. 30, 2018.

An Executive Order issued Dec. 1 directed “All executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed on December 5, 2018, as a mark of respect for George Herbert Walker Bush, the forty-first President of the United States.” https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-providing-closing-executive-departments-agencies-federal-government-december-5-2018/. A National Day of Mourning in honor of the former-president’s passing was also announced https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-proclamation-announcing-death-george-h-w-bush/

The District Headquarters, in Walla Walla, Washington, will be closed. USACE regulatory program field offices in Idaho, and administrative offices and visitor centers at Walla Walla District dams in Oregon, Washington and Idaho will also be closed for the day.

Because of ongoing contractor work activities, Lower Granite Lock and Dam, near Pomeroy, Wash., will be open for public vehicle crossings from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 5.  Little Goose Lock and Dam, near Starbuck, Wash., and Lower Monumental Lock and Dam, near Kahlotus, Wash., will be closed to public access for crossing.

Recreation areas and boat launches will remain open for visitors. Camping reservations are not affected by the Day-of-Mourning closure.

All offices and dams will resume regular schedules on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018.
