City painting Cougar colors down Yakima Avenue today

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash.-- Crews with the city of Yakima are gearing up to transform part of Yakima Avenue into "Cougar-ville".

It's part of a Yakima Rotary fundraiser called "U Rule Yakima" which wrapped up last week.
People could donate $20 on a special site and vote for either the Cougars or the Huskies. The Cougs ended up winning this year.

Yakima Avenue will have its stripes painted in Cougar colors and many businesses will raise Cougar flags.

Traffic will drop down to one lane between 1st Street and 8th Street from nine this morning until five this evening while crews paint the road.
