Message from WSDOT ~ South Central Region ~ Union Gap. A month-long traffic revision starts in south Union Gap on September 11, 2019.
As construction crews make progress, improving access to and from I-82 and south Union Gap, travelers will experience some delays in September and October. A 30-day traffic revision will start the evening of Wednesday, September 11, 2019. During that time, crews will make repairs to the bridge that connects northbound US 97 to westbound I-82 and construct the new eastbound off ramp.
Here are the traffic revisions:
• Westbound travelers on I-82 will not be able to access the south Union Gap off ramp (Exit 38). The I-82 Valley Mall Boulevard exit will remain open at all times as an alternate route.
• Northbound travelers on US 97 will be able to access south Union Gap.
• Northbound travelers on US 97 will follow detour signs to reconnect to westbound I-82.
Signed detours will direct travelers through the project area and message boards, along the highway, will provide advance notice of traffic revisions. Business in south Union Gap will remain open through construction.
If you have any questions, please contact Summer Derrey at 509.577.1750.
