The area of this project is primarily industrial and commercial retail, with Main Street accessing Interstate 82 to the east, the Valley Mall to the north, and the Yakima municipal airport to the west. The project required right-of-way acquisition and assistance from Yakima County to widen the roadway.
Main Street was reconstructed from four lanes to a five-lane section, with a center turn lane. The existing asphalt overlay and cement concrete pavement slabs were removed, as well as curb and gutter. The new widened area includes HMA pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalks, storm drainage, illumination, traffic signal at Ahtanum Road, ADA compliant ramps, and pavement markings.
HLA provided funding application assistance, environmental coordination, design engineering, plans, specifications, bidding assistance, construction observation and management, and funding administration.
