Downtown Richland detour: George Washington Way closed through Sunday
RICHLAND, Wash. —
Drivers heading through downtown Richland should leave a little extra time to get where they're going this weekend.
George Washington Way is completely impassable between Swift and Lee Boulevards until Sunday night for the See 3 Slam tournament.
Hundreds of three-on-three basketball players are competing on the stretch of road, raising money for local charities.
Volunteer Justin Brown said the event is in its third year and they're constantly learning how to best manage the crowds, vendors, players, and detours.
"We're slowly continuing to work out all the kinks," he explained. "It's been smoother than years past. Not free of issues, but less than normal. "
Organizers said cleanup along George Washington Way should be finished before Monday morning.
