Crews closing Lateral A near Wapato

Posted: Updated:

WAPATO, Wash. 

Starting at 8 p.m. Monday night, crews will close Lateral A Road at the US 97 intersection to Kays Road.

The road will be closed from 8 p.m. Monday night through 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. US 97 will be restricted to one lane in each direction near Wapato. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes.

This work is part of a highway safety and preservation project that replaces portions of asphalt and adds jersey barriers along US 97 from Wapato to Toppenish. The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of July.
