Transportation plan gets unanimous approval

ASOTIN COUNTY, WA - Asotin County commissioners are moving forward with a multiple project transportation plan.

They unanimously approved the 2014 through 2019 transportation plan at their monthly meeting Monday night.

There are 15 projects in the plan ranging from the Fleshman Way/Snake River interchange to Evans Road with a total cost of $41,000,000 for all of the proposed projects. One million dollars of that would come from local tax money.

"Fourteen million coming from state funding and the remaining 25 million would be federal funding for these projects here," said Asotin County Public Works Director Jim Bridges

The annual list of projects will be submitted to the Washington Department of Transportation and the LC Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization. The plan works to reduce congestion and improve road quality.
