Construction to close portions of Mill Creek trail system


WALLA WALLA -- Portions of the Mill Creek trail system will be intermittently closed this week due to construction work.

The closures will occur Wednesday through Saturday to allow work crews with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to make electrical upgrades and install equipment at the Mill Creek Dam.

The construction safety zone will include portions of the Kingfisher Loop on the south side of Mill Creek between the Mill Creek project office and the dam at the diversion structure, including the concrete pad over the intake canal, and continuing down the Whitetail Trail on to the end of the concrete diversion channel leading to Bennington Lake.

The foot bridge near the project office will be open for visitors to cross, however the bridge further upstream will be closed during this time.
