There was an accident at the Denny Substation Project construction site.
A backhoe hit a power pole at Denny and Minor streets at about 11:45AM, trapping 3 workers. Two workers in a dump truck and one in the backhoe were trapped.
There were no injuries.
Denny Way will be closed for 10-12 hours between Fairview and Stewart.
3 of 4 lanes along Denny Way have reopened after being blocked by toppled power poles from the accident.
TJ Maxx is coming this fall to the corner of Pike and 3rd, in the Kress Building. Its address is 1419 3rd Avenue, next to Kress Supermarket and across from Ross Dress for Less.
It was previously mentioned that J.C. Penney would be moving into this space, but TJ Maxx has taken its place.
