Beginning Friday, the Fourth Avenue access to the Olympia Artesian Well will be closed.
The Artesian Commons project area (the north end of the current well/parking site) will be secured with temporary construction fencing until the project is complete and the park is officially opened in May.
The well will remain open and accessible during construction for users to obtain water from Fifth Avenue and from a new entrance to the parking lot from Jefferson Street. A portion of the existing parking lot (south end of the current site) has been restriped with convenient parking spaces reserved for people drawing water from the well.
For questions regarding the project, call Project Manager Kip Summers, at 360-570-5834.
