Grand Avenue to partially re-open next week

REBECCA WHITE, Evergreen assistant news editor

A city of Pullman engineer predicted that part of the roadwork on Grand Avenue will be completed by early next week.

Cara Haley, a civil engineer for the Pullman Public Works Department, said the road way would be completed early in the week. She said the remaining work, sidewalks and landscaping, should not impede traffic.

Haley said the project is only a week or two behind schedule thanks to a few hiccups earlier in the summer.

“Obviously everybody would like to have all four lanes before the students come back,” Haley said. “But sometimes things are beyond your control.”

Haley said students should check the City of Pullman Facebook page for regular updates on road work and construction information.
