First Street Improvements

Project location map

Reconstruct roadway to a 3-lane section w/ bike lanes, curb, gutter and sidewalks on both sides. Underground the electric lines; construct sewer and communications infrastructure. Intersection improvements at George Washington will include a traffic signal or roundabout. Add sidewalks along George Washington and 1st to the east.

Why are we Building This Project?
Existing roadway is in poor condition and in need of reconstruction.  In addition to the road improvements, the project will provide needed utility and communications infrastructure for the proposed Tri-Cities Research District, which has been designated as a Washington State Innovation Partnership Zone.  The improvements will support WSU-Tri-Cities, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Port of Benton, City of Richland and private development plans.
