WALLA WALLA, Wash. – Work to repair the area below the fish ladder at the Mill Creek diversion dam project will require temporary trail closures Aug. 19-24, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operations officials.
Signs will be posted requesting pedestrian/bike traffic to be aware of the impacted area from the wooden foot bridge up the diversion dam and heading north east to the parking lot. In addition, the contractor may use some nearby staging areas as well.
For safety, visitors should respect all closed areas, and be aware of construction vehicles and trucks traveling along the gravel and paved roads on the project during this period.
