Union Gap City Council Approves Purchase of Land for Valley Mall Blvd Extension

YAKIMA, Wa -  A plan to extend Valley Mall Boulevard to 16th and Washington Avenues takes a big step toward becoming a reality. 

The Union Gap City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that will allow the Transportation Department to start buying the land needed to build the extension.

Union Gap Mayor Aubrey Reeves says it will take about a year for the DOT to buy all the land, but he's hoping that construction can start sooner -- possibly some time next spring.
