Road closures loom

Back-ups are moderately long right now along Sunnyside’s Waneta Road near exit 69 on I-82, but the project will soon be closing a section of Sunnyside-Mabton Road for nearly a month to conduct bridge deck repairs, along with repaving and resurfacing of the road. Moe Davari of the Washington State Department of Transportation said the construction will move south toward Mabton in the next few weeks, but the exact start of the closure has not yet been determined. At the moment, construction is limited to repaving portions of SR 241 along Waneta Road. Drivers are urged to use caution around the construction and seek alternate routes when possible.
