New restrooms to be installed at Bennington Lake


WALLA WALLA — Vehicle and pedestrian access to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Mill Creek Office parking area and portions of the Bennington Lake parking area will be closed Wednesday.

The closure is to allow contractors to install new public restrooms.

Limited parking outside the construction area will be available at Bennington Lake. Visitors will also be able to access the Mill Creek and Bennington Lake trail system from the lake or Rooks Park Road.

The parking areas are slated to reopen Thursday.

The new restrooms are expected to be functional by mid-December. They will be open year-round and will replace the old restrooms, which were installed in the 1990s and required winterization and closure each year.
