Grant for Yakima Intersection


YAKIMA, Wash. -- The City of Yakima has been given a $1 million grant from the Transportation Improvement Board.

The money will be used to upgrade the intersection of Washington Avenue and 16th Avenue, which will see an increase in traffic once the Valley Mall Boulevard Phase III project is completed.

The City of Yakima will chip in about $300 thousand for the upgrade, with another $130 thousand coming from Union Gap.
