Yakima's Downtown Revitalization is on Schedule to be done this Fall
YAKIMA, Wa - City officials say downtown revitalization in Yakima is right on schedule, but some businesses are anxious for construction to wrap up. They say it's hurting their business...
Phase One construction in the downtown revitalization process is about halfway done. The sidewalks are finished along the north side of Yakima Avenue from 9th Street to Front Street, but more work needs to be done on the south side and in the historic district.
A spokesperson for the city says phase one of the construction should be done in the fall. The whole project will cost about $5 million. New sidewalks, lighting and landscaping are being put in.
