WALLA WALLA -- Construction work will close road access to Rooks Park Wednesday.
Pedestrians will still be able to access the park from the Mill Creek Trail near the western-most side of the park and parking will be available at the Mill Creek Project office or at Bennington Lake.
The closure is to allow a trench to be dug through the road near the park entrance and through the park along the eastern section of the trail. The work is part of electrical upgrades and the installation of electric motors at Mill Creek Dam.
Portions of Mill Creek Trail will also be temporarily closed as work progresses.
The park is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Information is available from the Mill Creek Project office at 527-7160.
