Work on Isaacs Avenue is about to get into full swing, and the haul promises to be long for businesses in the corridor that depend on a regular flow of traffic.
This project stands apart from previous street overhauls in Walla Walla because of how long work is expected to take and the difficulty of reaching businesses by alternate routes.
And we’ve seen from previous projects how much of an effect a closed or partially closed road can have on businesses.
So we’re going to feature a different business along Isaacs each week while construction is ongoing.
On Monday, Vicki Hillhouse will bring you the first installment with a chance to get to know Yeehaw Aloha, the thrift and gift shop that has lived at 1439 Isaacs sinc 2013.
Our goal is to feature each and every business on the affected stretch of Isaacs over the coming months and into next year as the city and contractors work to link stretches of the road that already have had their extreme makeover.
