WALLA WALLA -- The horse trailer parking and turn-around areas along Mill Creek will be closed starting today due to construction work in the channel.
The parking and turn-around areas, just east of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mill Creek Office, will be closed through Sept. 15. Visitors with horse trailers are encouraged to park at the Bennington Lake parking lot on Mill Creek Dam.
The construction project will create a low-flow fish channel in the stream to improve passage of steelhead and bull trout, which are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.
