Project Description

This stage of the project will reconstruct 0.82 miles of roadway to a standard three-lane urban arterial section with shared bike lanes in each direction, curbing with a variable width swale (2-9 ft.) and a 12 foot asphalt pathway on the north side, roadside illumination, improved signage and clear zones along project limits and intersections between Yakima City Limits (near S. 26th Avenue) and S. 42nd Avenue Intersection. The project will also include the replacement of Bridge #123 (Bachelor Creek) to address flood and hydraulic concerns and accomodate the new road design.
