On the heels of Yakima addressing their road improvements with a bond, the city of Selah is attacking their road woes as well.

The Transportation Improvement Board is finalizing details on a long-term plan that will fix First Street and other high-traffic roads according to KIMA.

Downtown business owners are excited and believe that the new roads will bring an increase in customers.

Sherry Dawson tells KIMA, “It might make people think that if they, if the traffic isn’t so heavy or so fast going by, they have a better chance of coming in.”

The long-term plan could take five years and the city currently has no concrete plans on how to pay for it. The city could apply for grant money to help in the process.

The city of Yakima recently passed a bond measure that set aside $2,000,000 yearly to pay for upgrades to the city roads.
