The Tri-Cities is growing! And with that comes new traffic! So new and improved roads are necessary to keep things moving. You may have already driven the new Bob Olson Parkway, or maybe not. But it's open and ready to make traffic in the Tri-Cities stay easy.  (We don't want to become Portland or Seattle do we?) The road provides another way to connect between 395 and 240, and includes new gutters, widened roads and pretty new landscaping!

Kennewick is celebrating this new stretch of road with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 5th at 11 am. The ceremony be on the new road near 15th Place, and parking is available off 15th Place near Desert Hills Middle School. Get there early to find your spot!
