Fence to divide railroad from Palouse Falls park

Herald staffMarch 16, 2014 

A fence will go up this spring to separate the railroad right of way from Palouse Falls State Park.

The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission approved a Grade Crossing Protective Fund grant of $23,000 to pay for the work to protect visitors at Palouse Falls.

The grant was requested by Union Pacific Railroad, which reported near-misses when visitors strayed from the park onto the tracks.
