"Two hundred thousand dollars is a good piece of that funding and it does keep us moving forward on the project, so it is real beneficial to getting this thing accomplished," said Gary Ekstedt, Yakima County Engineer.

Local transportation crews were preparing Tuesday to assure passable roads for the morning commute, according to Yakima County Engineer Gary Ekstedt.
The goal is to make sure arterials and collector roads are passable for the morning commute and that school buses are able to cover their route, Ekstedt said. "We have all the equipment on standby on the chance we will get the maximum predicted snow," Ekstedt said.

Yakima County engineer Gary Ekstedt said he expects county road crews will have more snowy days to deal with this year, given the forecast of a wetter, cooler winter season.
"We feel we are probably going to have an above average snow removal year," Ekstedt said. "We will be responding to more snow events than we would on a neutral or average year." "Our objective is to be ready for the morning commute," Ekstedt said.

The project costs about $43 per foot, said Yakima County Engineer Gary Ekstedt.
Ekstedt said the county received the grant under a federal transportation enhancement program that funds conversion of rail lines to trails, traveler information and other features not related directly to road construction. Ekstedt said the Greenway missed out on a grant application last year that would have extended the pathway farther.

"The watershed moment is getting the Federal Highway Administration to look at this and agree if we document things to their satisfaction, we can make this happen," said Gary Ekstedt, Yakima County's engineer assigned by county commissioners to oversee the joint city-county effort.
"We have cleared a hurdle, but we still have a race to run," Ekstedt added. Ekstedt described the agreement as a division of labor. Ekstedt said the funding should get the project to a point to start construction, which will require state and federal funding. Ekstedt cautioned the proposal is preliminary and subject to change based on the outcome of further study and environmental review. In its current form, the plan moves two freeway ramps - the off-ramp at Lincoln Avenue at the Gateway Center and the westbound freeway on-ramp from Yakima Avenue. Ekstedt said the proposal is to move the Lincoln Avenue off-ramp, Exit 33A, to the west side of the railroad crossing into the mill, near where the east-west corridor will be located. Ekstedt applauded county commissioners and the City Council for taking the initiative locally to invest the money necessary to get a project ready for funding. "That's going to be the name of the game for the next several years. There will be limited resources and a lot of competition," he said.
