WS Construction Enterprise is completing sidewalk and road work in Greeley Heights for the next few weeks. Starting Monday, Quail Trail will be closed to all traffic (with some local residence exceptions) from Tenino Road to Bear Drive and including the Looksh Street intersection.  The existing pavement will be pulverized and graded next week and paving is scheduled to begin on September 18th.

Also starting Monday, chip sealing will occur on Route 3 from the Sunnyside intersection to Indian Head Canyon.  Motorists can expect delays with traffic routed by pilot car. Route 8 will be closed at the Kah-Nee-Ta Bridge, so Kah-Nee-Ta residents/employees will need to use Webster Flat Road as a detour.
