City Approves “H” Street as Preferred Route

kit

Tuesday night, the Yakima City Council gave the approval  of the selection of “H” Street as the preferred route. The approval will start an environmental study of traffic, noise, air and water quality impacts.

This arterial route will also include a crossing of the Yakima River and access to the old Boise Cascade mill site, which is destined for development of residential, commercial and light industrial.

The City Council authorized study involves a section from I-82 to north First Street and another study that will involve the extending the street west to Fruitvale Boulevard and to north 40th Avenue. The section involving “H” Street will be three lanes plus a turn lane.

Jay Freeman, a north Naches Avenue resident, says he is concerned that the project will eliminate parking or force people from their homes. Freeman suggests looking at “G” street as a better candidate. “G” Street was eliminated from the study due to the proximity of the train rails line that would take more property.

Council members says that the residents concerned about the impact to their homes will have more opportunities for comments as the environmental report moves forward.
