Push For Crosswalk On 16th Avenue & Hathaway In Yakima
YAKIMA, Wash.- 16th Avenue by DSHS in Yakima is a busy street and can be very dangerous for pedestrians. Now the Yakima city council says they're working to get enough money to put in a pedestrian crosswalk.
Two weeks ago City Manager Dick Zais and council members Kathy Coffee and Neil McClure went to Olympia to talk with the director of DSHS. While there, Zais says they asked for $100,000. Zais says he's confident DSHS will help fund the project.
If all goes well, city council should find out whether they can move forward with enough money within a couple of weeks. If approved, Zais says construction could kick off late summer or early fall.
