Road closure begins tomorrow on E. 1st Avenue in Kennewick

<p></p>

Beginning tomorrow and continuing through Friday, E. 1st Avenue will be closed between Washington Street and SR-397.

Local traffic will be maintained for businesses and residents, but no traffic will be allowed to go through on E. 1st Avenue so please use the established detours.

This closure is to allow for a 36” sewer mainline to be installed across E. 1st Avenue as part of the Beech Street Sewer Project.

There will be significant impacts at the signalized intersections of 1st & Washington, Columbia Dr. & Washington, and Columbia Dr. & SR-397 due to the detoured traffic.

Please allow for and expect delays.

Trucks should use Columbia Drive or E. 10th Avenue for local delivery access.
