Drive SR 24 to Moxee? Local Officials Want to Hear From You
If you drive State Route 24 to and from Moxee you know how busy the road can get in the mornings and afternoons. That congestion is a big concern for local and state governments it's the reason behind an ongoing study.
WILL WE SEE A WIDENING OF THE ROAD TO ADDRESS CONCERNS?
The city of Moxee, Yakima County, the Yakima Valley Conference of Governments and the Washington State Department of Transportation have partnered on the study to address concerns along the SR 24 corridor as growth and development is increasing congestion. A very important part of the study is input from those who drive the corridor everyday.
