RICHLAND, Wash. - Construction is underway in an area of Richland that is growing rapidly.
Crews are clearing land and making way for a new touch-less car wash near the intersection of the SR 240 and Duportail. The area surrounding the land is home to three large apartment complexes and around 150 homes. The City of Richland says the area and liberty car wash group saw an opportunity.
"I think with that third apartment complex, there is enough residents within that immediate area to justify some neighborhood commercial," said Rick Simon with the City of Richland.
Simons says the land plots on each side of the car wash are the only remaining plots of commercial land available near the intersection of SR 240 and Duportail.
