Yakima Engineers Working To Improve Infrastructures

It’s not the most glamorous work, but improving the city’s streets, sewer lines, and infrastructure have an impact.

The city currently has more than $26 million of capital improvements in the works for 2012. Our news partner KIMA Action News reports, in an economy where money is tight, Yakima is capitalizing on partnerships. Companies and groups like Washington Fruit and Produce Company, the Yakima School District, and the Apple Valley Kiwanis Club helped secure the funding.

“Having the other players there to show that the other participants are interested enough to put that kind of money in to the game, goes a long ways,” said Yakima City Engineer Doug Mayo.

Projects this year include the upper section of Kiwanis Park, widening the street at 64th Avenue between Tieton and Nob Hill, and ongoing work like the Sawmill redevelopment.
