The city of Yakima is collaborating with the State Traffic Safety Commission to make Yakima roads safer. Mayor Micah Cawley says the city is receiving upwards of $200,000 in state grant money to make changes to problem areas in the city.

The money will pay for both street improvements and extra law enforcement patrols to help cut down on speeding and texting and talking behind the wheel. Cawley says Main Street in Union Gap to First Street in Yakima and Nob Hill Blvd near Yakima Valley Community College are just two of the many areas of the city where the emphasis will happen. Cawley says city officials have been meeting for more than six months to come up with a list of areas that need special attention in the city of Yakima. A major media campaign will kick off the program in Yakima next month.
