Hastings gets $6.44 million

for Union Gap project added to transportation bill

WASHINGTON D.C. - Fourth District Congressman Doc Hastings has worked to get $6.44 million added to a transportation bill that is moving through Congress. The money is earmarked to rework two congested I-82 interchanges near Union Gap.

"Improving these interchanges is important both for traffic flow and for economic growth and development," said Hastings. "These funds will help get this needed project underway. It will benefit Union Gap and the greater Yakima area."

Hastings secured $500,000 for the Union Gap project last year. The $6.44 million, if left in the transportation bill, would complete the $6.94 million total needed to complete the design phase.
