Yakima County Moves on Improvements on Roads

kimatv

County commissioners decided Tuesday to move forward with a project to improve safety on 29 of the county’s deadliest roads. Rural roads in Yakima County are among the most dangerous in the state; engineers say there were 26 fatal accidents last year alone. There have been over 140 car crashes here and three deaths over the last three years. $1.2-million federal grant dollars were awarded to the county to make the road safer.
Part of that money will provide critical safety improvements to 1.2 miles of this road from East Wapato Road to Philip John Road, as well as another 28 of our most dangerous rural county roads. Phase one of the improvements calls for the construction on North Track Road. Phase two will be for the other 28 roads.

The county expects to begin the work this fall.
