Thanks to federal grant money, a new visitors center will be constructed at the north end of the Yakima River Canyon Scenic Byway.

The National Scenic Byways Program will fund  the construction of a new visitor center at the northern gateway of the Yakima River Canyon Byway at Helen McCabe Park. The grant is worth $719, 174. SR 821 became the state’s first scenic byway in 1968.

The U.S. Department of Transportation this week announced its grant awards to support projects that improve roadway safety, maintain the nation’s roads and bridges, and make communities more livable. Seven Washington State Department of Transportation projects were awarded a total of more than $5.3 million from several grant programs, including $4.2 million to Washington State Ferries for four projects.

I-90 Snoqualmie Pass received $182,600 for installation of  LED-lighted-lane markers and high-visibility-barrier markers in places along 15 miles of Snoqualmie summit. The markers will improve visibility for drivers at night and during inclement weather to reduce the risk of collisions.
