College Avenue/Rose Street Reconstruction Project Construction Alert

January 25 - February 05

Location: College Place

This is an important construction alert for the City of College Place’s College Avenue/Rose Street (CARS) Reconstruction Project for the week of January 25th.

Rock is to be placed north of “C” Street on College Avenue and west of Carey Court on Rose Street.

Subgrade is to be prepared for sidewalks on Rose Street from Carey Court to Lambert.

Concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter are to be installed on portions of both College Avenue and Rose Street to include sidewalks in front of Walla Walla University between 4th Street and Whitman Drive.

Fiber optic cable, electrical conduit and irrigation trenching is to continue from “C” Street north to Rose Street and then east along Rose Street.

Work will also include hauling off spoils stored on Rose Street, installing a water line under the railroad crossing at Damson Avenue, and installing sanitary sewer and storm on Rose Street between Damson and Wallula Avenues.

All work is weather-dependent.

College Avenue from Whitman Drive to “B” Street remains open to through traffic as does College Avenue south of 4th Street. Both the 4th Street and Whitman Drive intersections remain open to east-west through traffic.

College Avenue northbound from 4th Street to Whitman Drive and from “B” Street to Rose Street remains closed to traffic.

Business and residential access on Rose Street from College Avenue to Carey Court is being maintained but otherwise remains closed to through traffic.

Damson Avenue and Wallula Ave crossings at Rose Street have been reopened.

Note that only local traffic will be allowed access in areas restricted to local traffic as safety and construction allows.

In most cases, local traffic can access businesses by detours around the construction zone. Customers are encouraged to approach businesses using side streets and park on side streets just outside of the construction zone on College Avenue.
