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
