Right now it's just an idea, in the discussion stage, but a proposal for landscaping the south side of the Interstate-82 exit 67 could become a reality in the coming year.
The Sunnyside Port Commission is currently putting together a proposal for the state Department of Transportation to landscape the exit, which intersects with Midvale Road at the south entrance to Sunnyside, said Travis Jensen, the Port's project administrator.
Jensen said Port officials met with the state traffic department last January to suggest the landscape project, but it was put on the back burner.
"We are planning to again meet with the Department of Transportation to talk with them about the proposal," Jensen said.
So far, no costs estimates have been suggested.
"We are just in the talking stages," Jensen said.
