Pasco Holds Open House on Road 68 Study

Posted: Updated:

Pasco, Wash. - In the last ten years, Pasco's Road 68 has transformed into one of the city's primary business corridors.  But all that growth comes with some consequences.

That's why the city is conducting a six-month study on the Road 68 corridor, to identify traffic and safety issues.  On Wednesday, project organizers held an open house at City Hall to share their findings so far, and to get feedback from people who live in that area about some possible solutions.

"The next thing is to take the information and come up with a recommended solution with our consultant.  Then, we'll present it to the City Council, and highlight the improvements needed to make the corridor safer," said Ahmad Qayoumi, Pasco's Public Works Director.

The city has another open house planned for October.  Project organizers hope to have their recommendations ready for the City Council by the end of the year.
