Guardrails to be installed along Yakima Valley Highway bridges


A mural on Fourth Street was tagged in a graffiti spree late Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning. Several other property owners on the street also reported vandalized property.

Thanks to an agreement with the Washington State Department of Transportation, Yakima County officials plan on installing guardrails along three bridges and a small section of Nagler Road.

The guardrail installation project includes placing a guardrail along a South Naches Road bridge, at two bridge locations along Yakima Valley Highway and along a short stint of Nagler Road. The bridges along Yakima Valley Highway expected to get guardrails include a small bridge crossing a Sunnyside Valley Irrigation District (SVID) canal near Schooley Road and another bridge crossing an SVID canal near Zillah Heights Road.

The estimated total cost of the guardrail project is $146,250, which includes $86,625 in federal funds and $59,625 in county funds.
