Loop Trail, park detours next week for asphalt work

by Rachel Hansen | Jul 10, 2020

Park visitors may notice a few changes while crews repave the exit driveway at Walla Walla Point Park and a section of the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail July 13-16.

The entrance to Walla Walla Point Park will become a two-way driveway while the exit route is repaved with new asphalt and curbs. The closure will be marked with signs and traffic cones. The project is expected to last at least four days, starting Monday, July 13.

Repaving crews will also set up a detour July 15 for about 400 feet of the Apple Capital Recreational Loop Trail. The project site will be about 180 feet northwest from the Richard Beyer statue, “Coyote Leads the Salmon Up the River” at the edge of Walla Walla Point Park. Crews will remove intrusive tree roots for safety and regrade the Loop Trail over two days, July 15-16.

Marked with signs, the Loop Trail detour will lead visitors through a grassy area adjacent to the project site. We encourage road cyclists to walk bicycles through the grass for safety.
